We had a double celebration today - - Suzanne's 800th AOC event and Belinda's 100th! Both ladies deserve huge kudos for their accomplishments! We also place a special rock in the woods in honor of our 7th year of Thursday Hikes at Island Ford! The rock isn't visible from the trail, but we all know where it is!

We took a new route, leaving the park at the lollipop trail, looping around Robert's Road and back into Island Ford. This was a route that David Vickers discovered - - and it was a nice change for the group.

We passed the Renegades on the lollipop and we saw a velvet buck in the woods. We stayed dry except for the last five minutes of the hike, during which we got caught in the beginning of a rain shower. Hardly enough rain to even speak of!

Congratulations, Belinda and Suzanne! Thank you for sharing your special milestone hikes with us! ~ Joyce
