On the evening of September 27th, we embarked on our very first Hike Crew event, marking it as a landmark occasion. The energy, anticipation, and excitement all throughout the night was truly palpable.
Together, we journeyed 3 miles around the scenic Hollywood Reservoir, pausing for some memorable snapshots with the Hollywood sign as our backdrop. As we meandered through the trail, laughter was spread, stories were told, and new friendships were formed. One participant shared that their favorite part was meeting new individuals with shared interests, while another expressed particular appreciation for the yoga session that followed the hike.
Post-hike, the group returned to Wondery HQ, where seasoned yoga teacher, Abbie Bear, guided us through a 45-minute yoga session tailored for post-hike tight and fatigued muscles. The class ended with a savasana under the night’s sky. As the night drew to a close, each participant left with more than just memories. They were gifted a Hike Crew T-shirt and our latest bear logo stickers.
As we bask in the afterglow of such an incredible event, a reminder to all: Our Hike Crew events are set to continue the last Wednesday of every month. Coming up on October 25th, we are collaborating with Chacos and our very own Gretchen, who will be leading a unique bird-watching hike in the Hollywood Hills. And once our feet are rested and our binoculars put away, we'll head back to HQ for some delightful snacks and sips. We hope to see you all there!
