The Sierra Club has always been a great way to meet like-minded people to get out and enjoy the outdoors. When I worked in L.A. 100+ hours a week, I really appreciated getting up into the mountains to hike trails and connect with the natural environment. It was a great way to clear the mind (and lungs!).

The Sierra Club always had outings I could join or information to learn about new places to explore. More than anything, just finding people with the same enthusiasm for the outdoors was worth joining. Since then, I've hiked all over the world and seen some amazing natural places.

I've barely scratched the surface here in Michigan. It really is a natural wonderland.
