Being avid outdoor women ourselves, we have always wanted to see a website
available to women that have a passion for the great outdoors and which
provides them with the opportunity to socialize and explore through many
exciting activities (hiking, biking, kayaking, concerts, fundraisers, etc).
Here it is. We hope that this site will provide you
the opportunity to meet other lesbians that share the spirit of outdoor
fun and adventure, will provide avenues for networking among the
various groups listed, and will provide the opportunity for you to find other
community activities that may be of interest to you.
Please take every opportunity to use this website in whatever constructive ways
that you see fit! And, please make your likes and ideas known to the
co-creators of the site: Janice "mistress of the web" Baird, and Kathy "walking
billboard" Schneider. With your help, we will attempt to keep this site
up-to-date and accurate.
