The 250 mem­bers of the Sun City An­them Hik­ing Club are re­defin­ing re­tire­ment. “We go out and do all these things that you don’t think about your grand­par­ents do­ing,” says Club Pres­i­dent Greg Water­man, 65. Con­sider that they spend their golden years on weekly hikes to places like Grand Canyon, Zion, and Havasu Falls. The Ari­zona group tack­les trips that range from easy ( 3 miles and rel­a­tively flat) to chal­leng­ing ( more than 7 miles and lots of climb­ing). If you’re in the area—and over 55—visit
