CPC Hikers


CPC Hikers Newsletters from 1996 and 1997

"CPC Hikers" is what Covenant Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga calls its occasional organized outings. For about 20 months in 1996 and 1997, I led a series of hikes, and published a newsletter each month for folks who were interested. Time constraints and waning interest caused me to move on, but there has been a recent revival of "CPC Hikers" at Covenant Pres, with at least annual overnight Thanksgiving Holiday backpacking trips for the past three years. Here on these pages are the newsletters from 1996 and 1997 (or they'll be along eventually, anyway.).
