Mon, Jan 4 2021 - Monday Morning at Vickery Creek - Starting at RIVERSIDE PARK (View Original Event Details)|
It was a beautiful day to celebrate Marianna's 400th AOC event. The air was cool, the sun was bright, and the company wonderful. Marianna looked delightfully happy, which made me very happy!
We filled up the 2 hour hike with many of the inner trails at Vickery, including passes to the dam on both sides of the creek. Sadly, the dead deer is still lying by the creek in the same place we saw it last Tuesday, though its condition has deteriorated markedly. A vulture in a nearby tree has obviously been feasting on the carcass. A sad sight.
But we were thrilled to see many beautiful live deer in the woods this morning, always a blessing on a hike.
Congratulations on your fantastic achievement, Marianna! We were honored to share this 400th event with you! ~ Joyce
