Last year, I tried to hike once a month. It's good exercise, you're breathing fresh air, being social and seeing the world.
I just started a private Facebook group called Let's Hike to help with coordinating and scheduling the monthly hikes.
Below is a log of hikes so far! Can't wait for 2015!
Mission Peak, Fremont, California
This is right in my backyard and a strenuous hike for me. My friend, Ji-Young, has done it many times before and without water. I couldn't suck down the stuff any faster! But I did it! It was quite an achievement for me, the then-non-hiker. We rewarded ourselves with a drink and lunch at Claim Jumper's in Fremont.
The Sutro Tower, San Francisco, California
The Dish, Palo Alto, California
