We are so excited to announce as of May 2018, we have a FGH Seattle chapter! Our amazing ambassadors & hike leaders are LaMonica & Rosemary. They can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org! All Seattle-area hikes/events will be posted through the main FGH pages.
I have always enjoyed being outdoors. While growing up I was an active kid, not an athletic kid. I was the one climbing trees, wondering off on my own down abandoned railroad lines, and using my imagination to make up stories along the trail. Growing up in Iowa cornfields didn’t provide much variation in scenery. I moved to Washington State almost 4 years ago and feel I’ve seen so little of the beauty of this state. I am so excited to explore more trails around the Seattle area and even more excited to be a part of FGH. I was a fat girl and I’m a fat woman. When I’m outside I feel contentment and joy. I enjoy feeling the strength of my legs, my heart and lungs working as I climb a steep part of the trail, and the feeling of accomplishment as I look back on the where we started and where we are now.
