Hiking on 04/07/2015

We organized a little hike to the mountains on the 4th of July.   Almaty Toastmasters Club has started a WhatsApp group for those interested in hiking.  Let us know if you want to join the group.   In addition to our regular meetings, we try to have some social events like bowling, hiking, holiday parties, etc.   We started off the hike with enthusiasm.


And stayed enthusiastic as we hiked uphill and through the brush.




The scenery was amazing and nature was beautiful.
