Hey ladies! I'm super excited for our first official meetup. We are just going to keep it short and sweet for our first hike, so we can chat and get to know each other! Since most of you seem to be from the Twin Cities area, we are going to start here, but I'll be sure to have events in different areas of the state in coming months! The trails we will be taking are snowshoe trails in the winter, and microspikes are strongly recommended.
