Hike and Pray

A newly forming parish group, Hike And Pray (HAP), will be meeting weekly to hike various area trails. As we hike, typically for 2 to 5 hours, we will also be praying - both with the understanding and in the Spirit. In addition to providing exercise and fellowship, we hope this activity will also assist in what has been termed 'the new evangelization.'  We will carpool from St Ambrose parking lot.  Hikers are reminded to bring plenty of water and that midway we'll be stopping for a light picnic/snack.  For more info, contact: thomasgwyndunbar@gmail.com, cellphone 540 267-5625, or see the webpage: http://atstambrose.blogspot.com/2012/05/hap.html

Upcoming Hikes:

Saturday, July 7th, leaving at 10am for Mill Creek Canyon,

Past Hikes:

Saturday June 23th, leaving at 10am for Lake Mary - a 2.2 mile (roundtrip) hike. Will probably go on to Lake Martha, 0.6 miles further.

Saturday June 16th, leaving at 10am for Lake Solitude - a 3.4 mile (roundtrip) hike.

Saturday June 9th at  10am, Yellow Fork Canyon Trail - a 4 hour hike  up into the Oquirrh Mountain foothills. This is across the valley, over by Herriman.

Weather was perfect as Mary Jane & Morris, Lori & Scott, and Thomas hiked up to around 8000ft:


  1. Thomas, sounds like a wonderful idea! I might have to start training, because I'm pretty sure I couldn't keep up with you guys right now, but it sounds amazing.

  2. Carolyn, come and see. There's no set pace and I'll try to vary the hike distances, etc. The two upcoming hikes, to lakes in Big Cottonwood, are less strenuous.

  3. Looks like a beautiful day for a hike!
