The Outdoor Group is a recreational and social group that meets the second and fourth Saturday during the cool months, plus New Year’s Day, to share an outdoor experience, primarily hiking. We welcome and encourage everyone interested in having some active fun outdoors to join us. No commitment is necessary. Come when you can, no excuses necessary when you can’t. For more information, please contact outdoorgroup@phoenixuu.org.

For more information, please contact outdoorgroup@phoenixuu.org. The Outdoor Group has gone into hibernation for the summer. Thank you all for making this last season very fun and adventuresome. We hiked some new trails, made some new friends, found some fun lunch spots and generally had a good time doing it.

If you were not hiking with us but would like to get in on the fun and excitement, please e-mail outdoorgroup@phoenixuu.org. You will be added to the e-mail list and receive the notifications about the events we have planned as the time approaches. Your e-mail will not be shared or used for any other purpose than information about the hiking group.

Our next event will be when we get back together in the fall with the Flagstaff campout October 13. Todd and Stephanie Haughton will be leading a hike on Saturday, October 13, when hopefully the aspen will be in their full glory! Ed and Bonnie will be hosting the campout at Sunset Crater National Monument on Saturday night. This is a great opportunity to share our summer stories, roast our hotdogs, and gaze at stars that never show up over Phoenix while warming our toes around the campfire. Please mark the date on your calendar now because this is a very fun event not to be missed!

Our second hike will be October 27, led by Phil Slater and Dan Hunn at Horton Creek near Payson, Arizona. This is going to be another beautiful hike you won’t want to miss.

Have a wonderful summer, everyone! Find some shade, enjoy life, and stay active! See you in October!
