Mon, Aug 8 2022 - Monday Morning at West Palisades from Akers Mill Road Entrance (View Original Event Details)|
This was a special day - - Dave Parker's 300th AOC event! I first hiked with Dave in July 2014, soon after he joined the club. Since then, we've shared 167 events. I was really happy to honor him today, 9 years later, on his centennial event.
The temperature today was pleasant, though there was a lot of humidity to deal with. That made Teresa happy, because (as she said) she likes to sweat! It was nice to see her after many, many months.
Our group did great. On the way back from the main parking lot, we climbed the killer hill from the very bottom, since we didn't have time to do the loop by the river. That made for a very long climb, but everyone did just fine! I was proud of them!
Thanks to Lee for lots of great photos today. They've been included in the album. ~ Joyce
