LA Hiking Group has enough members to fill half a Taylor Swift stadium concert! Which is kind of crazy when your goal is to meetup with a half dozen peeps and go for a simple walk in the hills around Los Angeles.

Sometimes it can be hard to get a spot because the walks fill so fast. Fortunately this walk didn’t fill too fast and I booked one of the 25 spaces. Almost more amazing, nearly all 25 walkers showed up!
Perfect Weather Hike in Griffith Park!
I’m not sure why walk organizer Tiffany T. called it a “Perfect Weather Hike”, but it sure is. Saturday 13 January 2024 is one gorgeous LA day!
I’ve only been to a handful of Meetup events. Hiking, photography, and so on. The organizers are all friendly and helpful. They typically say things like “OK, let’s go! Turn around if you get tired. See you at the end if you make it that far. Try not to get killed.” I wouldn’t expect more from someone who posts a “let’s walk” notice and accompanies a ragtag group of wanderers on an outing.
Tiffany is a whole other kind of organizer. Somehow, when you arrive, she already knows your name and whether she’s met you before. As the hike progresses through its various meanders, she’s counting heads to make sure everyone is still with the group. It’s simple, yet I doubt I could actually do all that. Tiffany makes it look easy. And she’s giving us a gorgeous trail on a sunny and crisp, “Perfect Weather Day” in Los Angeles.
(don’t worry, if March ‘24 is anything like March ‘23, we’ve got many weeks of “atmospheric rivers” ahead of us before the Spring hiking season begins.)
