If you have ever met Gloria, you know what an amazing human she is! She started hiking as a way to deal with changes in her life, and she never stopped. Gloria went from shorter hikes at lower elevations to Catskill 3500 peaks and the Sierras, conquering altitudes of over 10,000 feet. Gloria is amazing, and today we are getting together to celebrate her 3rd year anniversary of hiking with AU, and her 74th birthday! And we are starting where it all started – at Pecoy Notch in the Catskills, climbing Twin Mountain, a Catskill 3500 peak. It’s going to be an amazing day to celebrate an amazing person, community, friendship, and accomplishment! We can’t wait!
