Last weekend, a group of 20s/30s SCers camped in Death Valley National Park and hiked to the top of Telescope Peak....in winds gusting up to 70 mph! 😲 That was last weekend. This weekend we have a hike to Parker Mesa Overlook and another hike to four breweries. Visit www.sc2030.org for more details. •••••••••• Thank you @grmrose for this photo! Be sure to head over to her IG page to see more pictures she took at the peak. #repost @grmrose (@get_repost) ・・・ Finally did a hike/camping trip with the Sierra Club! Was quite a blustery day in Death Valley, but we still enjoyed views of Badwater Basin. #sierraclub #sierraclubangeleschapter #hikerlife #hikemoreworryless #hike #hikesocal #socalhikes #dvnp #deathvalley #deathvalleynationalpark #findyourpark #hikinglife #hiking #peakbagging #telescopepeak #nature #camping

Today was the first ever Sierra Club City Hike. Why a city hike? Walking through an urban landscape allows us to witness the choices humans have made to the earth. We got to see our city in a whole new way and think about the ways we could better harmonize civilization and wilderness. We also raised almost $25K for clean city initiatives like converting fleets of city buses and trucks to electric power and promoting community access to affordable sources of 100% renewable energy to power personal vehicles. It is not too late to donate! Help us hit $30K. This is your city. This is your planet.

#repost @sc20s30s ・・・ For today's #thankfulthursday we want to say a big "THANK YOU!" to everyone who picks up trash that they see on the trails. You are all wonderful people.😍 We hope you continue to do such wonderful things (but please do so safely!) . . . Today's picture come via our neighbor group @scsangorgonio. These are balloons they picked up on one of their recent hikes. When balloons get loose and float away, they eventually have to come down somewhere. These escaped balloons end up marring our beautiful parks, oceans, wildlands, and other places we all love to go to for our outdoor enjoyment. They also pose a huge risk to wildlife. So please, please don't release balloons. And to prevent unintentionally escaped balloons, consider alternative ways to decorate for parties instead of using balloons. . . And just as a reminder, Sierra Club hikes are open to everyone! So if you're looking for more hikes outside of the usual stomping grounds of the @sierraclubangeles and you're willing to travel a little further, (please carpool or take public transit when possible) check out the activities of our neighbors @scsangorgonio @venturasierraclub @sierraclubsd. . .

Hike 7 was with @sc20s30s to Sturtevant Falls and then looped through Santa Anita Canyon, led by @hikingsnobs . It was a gorgeous hike, with a bunch of water crossings (I lost count around 15) and historical sights. The recent rains have made the canyon really lush and green, and the waterfall is definitely flowing strong. #52hikechallenge #52hikechallenge2019 #sierraclubangeleschapter #sierraclub #hike #hiking #hike7 #latergram #socalhiking #socalhike #girlswhohike #hikecalifornia #angelesforest #hikemoreworryless #traillife #followyourfeet #optoutside #getoutandhike #outdoors #waterfallwednesday

Happening this SUNDAY, 3/10/19!!! Thanks to the recent rains, our local waterfalls are looking good! Join us as we visit Sturtevant Falls, one of the iconic waterfalls of the Angeles Forest. We will then make our way through Santa Anita Canyon via the Upper Winter Creek and Hoeggee's Camp for a beautiful 7 mile loop. This is a MODERATE hike that ascends up a deep cut canyon, through which Winter Creek flows on its way to merge with Santa Anita Creek. The floor of the canyon features lush ground cover, many trees, large rock faces, and a lovely creek. You'll also see a few historical cabins and check dams on this hike. Distance: 7 mile loop, 1000 ft of gain Starting time 7am. Full details and description at www.sc2030.org Parking is at a premium at Chantry Flat. Please carpool and arrive early. Don't get a ticket! Remember to display your Adventure Pass or interagency Annual Pass at the parking lot. Bring water, snacks, and a light lunch. Wear sturdy shoes and carry your 10 essentials. Heavy rain or road closure cancels this event. #sierraclub #sierraclubangeleschapter #santaanitacanyon #hiking #hikes #hike #adventure #findyourtrail #followyourfeet #hikemoreworryless #getoutside  #angelesnationalforest #rei1440project #womenwhohike #girlswhohikela #52hikechallenge #explore #southerncalifornia #adventureiscalling #optoutside #outdoors #socalhikes #socalhiking #traillife #socalhike

Wear your most festive scarf and join us for a hike at Icehouse Canyon....where hopefully there will still be enough snow that we can have a snowball fight! (Festive scarf not actually required, but highly suggested. It's windy and cold on that trail. Brr!) Roughly 7 miles, with great views of Mt. Baldy and Bighorn Peak, on a well maintained trail, this a fantastic hike. You will need an Adventure Pass or an America the Beautiful pass to park at the trailhead. Stick around after the chilly hike for some hot cocoa!

@underhill11 said “let’s go go up there 👆🏼,” so we did. The off-trail ascent led us to 360 degrees of raw beauty. We could have stayed up here for hours admiring the rocky peaks blanketed by the perfect-blue sky. I could hear Bob Ross saying “and here lives a happy little mountain with some happy little trees.” Experiencing (literally) breathtaking views truly puts me in a good place. My happy place! Thanks for reading! Go explore Mom Nature because I think there’s only one life to live... and I’m pretty sure it’s only on this Earth. 🤷🏽‍♂️ #radparks #parksproject
