You all have a mission!  Get out and take a hike.  Be prepared. Gather your essential 10 and day pack and get on a local trail.  See what you find. Take photos.  Record a video.  Be prepared to share what your "start of summer" hike was like at the next meeting.

There are many hikes right here in Penfield.  The attached "Hit the Trail - Passport to Health" has hikes around Penfield (attached below).  Find a hike, print the page, bring a crayon and take a rubbing of the trailhead marker and then explore the trail.
