Write Up:
This was one of our series of Beginners Welcome hikes, but it wasn't an easy one. We kept up a solid pace and tackled a few hills, including the infamous BAH. This group of "beginners" have come a long way over the past months.  

We hiked along the river, up and down some hills to the bamboo forest, then up the BAH to the overlook deck. Along the way, we saw some ducks, a Great Blue Heron, and a cormorant - - not terribly exciting, but some preferred them to snakes!

We had excellent motivation for getting back to the parking lot - - frozen popsicles that Trena brought for us. They were certainly the perfect way to conclude our warm weather hike. ~ Joyce
