What we're about

DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE FOR ADVERTISEMENT OF YOUR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES!!!! If you have what you think is a legitimate message you'd like to share with the group send it to me via e-mail and I'll decided on it.

Camaraderie. Conversation. Fresh Air & Exercise

Join us for an opportunity to meet new people while getting outdoors. Kids are welcome. Fido too on his/her leash where allowed. On weekends we usually stick fairly close to Denver with hikes offering great Colorado scenery and views. You will sometimes get to see big horn sheep (like on the Quandary climb), hawks soaring overhead (like from dinosaur Ridge) , wildflowers in the spring, and songbirds in the forest. We usually stop off for lunch on the way home.

Folks it is winter now. And we are in Colorado. Please come to your outing prepared. Depending on the outing you may need snowshoes or spikes and poles. Dress in layers and try to stay away from anything cotton. And as we get further into winter be prepared to attach your snowshoes to your pack.

We have different hikes. We do from easy to moderate hikes in the foothills with 300 to 600 feet elevation gain to more challenging hikes higher up in the mountains. Decent trail shoes or boots are recommended along with some extra clothing, a snack and some water.

We also mix in more advanced trips on a regular basis like backpacking the Grand Canyon, other National Parks and Wilderness Areas in Colorado and other states.

Please assess each the outing based on your abilities, gear and physical conditioning. Same for the kids if they plan to come along. Join the group and we'll email you the hike details, directions to the park-n-ride we're using and directions to the trailhead each week so you can make your plans.

Camp and dayhike around the Sand Dunes area.

Online event

We are going to go down and camp in one of the first come first served campgrounds near the Sand Dunes. Then we are going to do day hikes in the area. I have one I want to do in the Spanish Peaks where I've never hiked and another I want to do in the Sand Dunes. And at night we'll cook good dinners. I'll see to it. If the weather is going to be too cold we won't go. But it should be nice. I'm going down on Thursday to get us a good camping spot. You can join me whenever after that. Just let me know so I'll know to expect you. More info coming.
