***I am delighted to announce that the most celebrated hiking guru and author of our favorite hiking books is joining us at our April Meeting. He is the most fascinating story teller, and trust me, this is not something you want to miss!!
New Hikes in NW Oregon & SW Washington
A slide show presentation by
William L. Sullivan
Oregon’s hiking guru takes us on an illustrated tour of a dozen new hikes he discovered while researching the just-released fifth edition of his book, “100 Hikes in NW Oregon & SW Washington.” Come discover a new waterfall trail near Hood River, an overlooked wildflower hike on the permit-free side of Mt. Adams, and a new kids’ hike along the Columbia River near Portland. Along the way get the latest news about fire-damaged trails in the Columbia Gorge, as well as anecdotes about history, wildflowers, and more.
Sullivan has written 21 books about the Northwest, including “Hiking Oregon’s History,” “Oregon Favorites,“ and “The Case of D.B. Cooper’s Parachute” His journal of a 1000-mile hike he took across Oregon, “Listening for Coyote,” was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s “100 Books,” the most significant books in the state’s history.

-----Our usual monthly meeting/social part-------
This is also a great opportunity for new members to meet some of our hike leaders, fellow hikers, and get a brief overview of the group and how it works. So let's get together for a bite and a brew, catch up with friends and meet new ones, brag about our adventures or misadventures.
We usually get started about 7 pm, so if you're running late don't worry about it just show up when you can. We have the room from 6-9 pm, and few of us start start trickling in from 6 pm onward.
Remember Max's lets us use the room for free, but asks that patrons buy food and drink. They also add an 18% gratuity.
See you there!
