Angora Hiking Club

Angora Hiking Club

Founded on July 4, 1920, the Angora Hiking Club of Astoria, Oregon is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The club began when members of the local Knights of Pythias Lodge decided to celebrate the July 4th holiday by climbing near-by Saddle Mountain. Appreciating both the climb and the view, they decided to form a hiking club.
