What we're about

This is a fun group for anyone who loves taking photos while hiking. Now you can go hiking and not feel a big rush to keep up with your fellow hikers or compromise getting that perfect shot.

We welcome photographers and hikers of all skill levels. Our events vary from rambles down well-trodden trails, to serious off-trail bushwhacking, to indoor events during the winter months. Often we will end up at a restaurant after the primary event. While we certainly love photography, first and foremost, we are a social group!

Please read events fully and ensure you have any prerequisite equipment and ability. Please sign up for any events that interest you, and remove your RSVP if you cannot attend. Flaking is not cool. Events fill up fast. We tend to post new events without announcing them. You are more likely to get in if you browse our upcoming events periodically.

Attendees are expected to be generally self-sufficient, and friendly. We, the leaders, offer a lot of help and guidance, but our events are lot richer and rewarding when everyone steps up to help and share.

We look forward to seeing you on the trail!

Hi all, I noticed that we have challenges communicating over MU. The discussion board is not very user friendly and when a member starts a discussion it does not notify us. Also, based on your feedback, I created this event so I can share the facebook group. I noticed that only a handful of users know about it. So if you are interested to follow the link beow. I would like to mention that if you are a member of the facebook group, your facebook profile remains private. Please check it out and if you decide that is not for you, you can just "unfollow" it afterwards. :) Also, if you have a hiking suggestion it is easier to post it on the facebook group and I can added it to the list. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1422661191368949/ Best, Jenny
