We're not outdoorsy people. We both had bad camping experiences earlier in life. We love the views, but not the dirt. And lack of toilets. Then we moved to California. Lo and behold, we discovered ways to enjoy the views and conquer something greater than ourselves by hiking. We even tolerated the bathroom situation a bit better. Now hiking is an activity that we plan to do while travelling. We'll call friends and suggest meeting at a trail head. We both have hiking shoes. We've been to Yosemite, Muir Woods and the foothills on the peninsula. Then we discovered we didn't even have to leave the city - we can urban hike!
