Meet at the Overlook Trailhead kiosk every Wednesday morning at 8:30 for a vigorous hike to the top and back (a little over an hour).
A well deserved award, “Sonoma Valley Star Volunteer” was presented to Joanna Kemper today at the 11th Annual Celebration for Star Volunteers at Hanna Boys Center, hosted by the Sonoma Valley Fund.
Joanna was the leader of the Sonoma Overlook Trail Stewards for over 9 years, providing guidance, support, and vision to the all-volunteer group that maintains and manages the trail. She’s been a key player in intiating and completing the recent rehabilitation and restoration of the trail. She’s still involved with the trail, providing support and energy to events, trail work and leadership.
It’s a lively group that hikes on Wednesday mornings.
Come join us–we meet at the trailhead kiosk at 8:30am.
Jeff Falconer led a group of hikers on Sunday on a silent hike to the top of the Overlook Trail where the mindful walkers enjoyed the sweeping view with a deep calm.
Jeff started the hike by suggesting the hikers combine awareness of breath, body in motion, and enjoy the natural surroundings for an enhanced experience.
If you’d like more information about enhancing your hikes with the discipline of meditation Jeff’s newly published booklet on Walking Meditation is available for purchase at Readers Books.
