"Wilderness is a necessity...a fountain of life...thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people who are beginning to find out that going to the mountain is going home; that wilderness is a necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life." —John Muir
My Yosemite experience began with the first practice hike to Mt. Pinos. This short beautiful hike invigorated me and left me feeling euphoric for days. It also made me want to be more fit for the next hike at Mill Creek…as the excitement and anticipation grew, I felt the desire to physically work toward the next hike. –Bea Flores
Hike #3: Yosemite Falls (5.19.07) I thought this was one of the best Club Aera trips I have been on in the last 10 years of participating in Club events... Just thinking about the day is making me happy and relaxed. I would love to do a trip like this again… --Carolyn Aranda I thought this was one of the best Club Aera trips I have been on in the last 10 years of participating in Club events...

“Not exercising is a depressant.” --David Tal Ben-Shahar Harvard University Psychology Professor
I got back to an active lifestyle about one year ago. Since then, my heart rate dropped down from above 70 to below 55 BPM, my cholesterol dropped about 30 points, and my weight dropped more than 30 pounds. I sleep better and have a very high energy level awake. Thank you, and I look forward to the next big healthy and active event. –Chet Bryniarski
Totally awesome trip! We loved sharing a perfect day, inspiring views… I really enjoyed meeting folks from other offices, and getting to know how interesting, fun, and nice they are! This was truly a fabulous team adventure - hope there will be more! The hikes were fun, and the conditioning and confidence allowed us to enjoy Yosemite to the max! –Susan Perrell

The magical trip and the training for Yosemite is an experience that will stand out for both Janet and me as life-changing. We thank you for challenging us to a new level of fitness that neither of us has enjoyed for decades or maybe ever. Let's do more hikes! –Andy McCrea
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." --John Muir, Our National Parks (1901)
