January 2007: Happy New Year to Harriman Hikers; old friends and those people who have only just now found us on the internet!
Your webmaster and general-purpose hike cheerleader, Rich and the Harriman Hikers Hike Leaders, Ed and Greg have taken a temporary sabbatical for now from our regular monthly email newsletter to rest up from all the holiday swirl of social activities, enjoy some personal time and reflect on the coming year.
None of this will affect our regular Sunday hikes, which will continue as usual, every Sunday as they have for over 30 years. We’ll be at Parking Lot B-1, South Lots, Ramapo College of New Jersey, Mahwah, NJ 07430 each and every Sunday at 11:30, rain or shine itchin’ to hike and waitin’ for you to join us!
Greg and Ed are busy cooking up new hike routes for our fitness enjoyment during the coming year- dont miss a thing in 2007!
Ed plans to continue his once-a-month Saturday extra hikes (Ed’s January additional hike was on New Year’s Day)-
Stay tuned here on the Harriman Hikers website and join our email newsletter list by registering for news of other additional group activities coordinated by various members and friends of the group as well as occasional general and environmental news of interest to the outdoors and singles communities at-large.
In the coming weeks we hope to update the online photo album backlog of hiking pictures dating back to last summer. We’d like to thank every one who has graciously shared their photos from the hikes and reassure you that your efforts do not go unappreciated. Keep an eye on our photo albums for updates. If you have photos from our hikes you would like to share please attach them to an email and drop them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or, better yet, upload them to your own online photo album and send us the url.
We hope that if you have only just discovered our group and are looking for an opportunity to get out the house into the great outdoors and make friends with other outdoor-minded singles that you will make some time on a Sunday soon and join us for an afternoon of hiking and fellowship in the closer-to-home-than-you-might-think wilderness wonderlands of the State Parks and Preserves of the southern Hudson Valley of New York State and northern New Jersey with their pristine woods, hills, valleys, lakes, rivers and vistas just waiting for you to savor for yourself.
As I sit at my computer and write on this Saturday afternoon in January, 2007, the weather outside is akin to springtime (shall we thank global warming for this?). The windows are thrown open, the sky is blue- it is, for all intents and purposes, a glorious day! The weather forecast for tomorrow is for a sunny day with highs in the 50’s- what better opportunity to spend a day outdoors!
We hope you will join us!
Ciao fer now-
