It's been 2 years since I – on a whim – began organizing group hikes for the dog community of Washington, DC. The #TravelsWithOllie hikes are all about community building and discovering nearby trails together. It's been a wonderful success with new faces joining the group of regulars every month. It's fun, fills me up and adds a to-do item that aligns with my need to explore.
Since so many of us travel for the Thanksgiving holiday, our November hike is going virtual. Join us on Black Friday, Nov 29th, by sharing your favorite trail and tagging #OptOutsideWithOllie on Instagram or posting to the event page on Facebook. Take a drive to nowhere, discover something new or revisit a favorite spot – just get outside and enjoy life with the ones you love.
We'll round out the 2019 hiking series with a Holiday Stroll at Mt Vernon on Dec 15th. I hope to see you and your pup out and about soon! And enjoy a selection of my favorite photos from the 2019 hiking series so far…in no particular order. :)
