What we're about
This Group is about finding something wonderful when you aren’t looking for anything special. It is about meeting people that you never expected to meet, making friendships that you didn’t think were possible which could change your life and seeing places in a way that you have not seen them before. Our Easy-Going Hikes are not, how fast can I get there? It is about MAKING MEMORIES and focusing on how can I really enjoy the moments in between, as I go from place to place, because where you are in the moment, is just as important as where you will end up. If you are in a hurry and have a schedule, this may not be the group for you. Namasté.

"Hi Mariel - You always make the hikes happy. I am going through some tough times and whenever I see you I smile. Thank you so much for being the sweet tender real person you are. I would love to be invited to your party. Thank you for thinking of me." MBA
Mariel Gonzalez Ganowsky (https://www.facebook.com/mariel.ganowsky)..."I just wanted to say thank you for all u do for us who hike with you. U are amazing. When everyone doubts us, we show him or her we can do it even better. U take us in when everyone else thinks that we can't do their hikes or we're too slow or maybe too fast or we're not in their click. U are a blessing to me and for that i thank you. Trek on my beautiful soul of a person and let's do some hikes. Love u always. 9-15-15 JBW — feeling blessed."

"We had soooo much fun today! We checked out so many overgrown trails & left super filthy with butts covered in dirt, but it was so worth it! I met Mariel several months back and we go on weekly hikes to different places with our other awesome hiking buddies. I really admire Mariel, not only for her pure kindness but also for the "adventurous live life to the fullest" soul that she is. She hikes almost every day of the week, climbs rocks like a 20 yr old, and she's in her 60s! We are only into March and she has almost completed her 52 hike challenge. If I am even half as spunky at her age, I will have really lived life. Mariel, you truly are an Inspiring person and a role model to others. Love u girl! "SC
