The Magnolias are a group of women who met each other while living on ship that sailed around the world.  We meet up every year in different parts of the country for a reunion, and sometimes we squeeze in some fun adventures in between.  This time, we took to the hills for an excellent workout–hiking!  There are trails everywhere, and tons of local sites that guide you to the best ones and give you the stats–how long, how rigorous, etc.  If you want to head out in colder months, slap on some snow shoes or good boots.  It’s rejuvenating to get out and experience nature while getting your heart rate up and catch up with friends, or get some introspection by going solo.

Happy Hiking!
