Fri, Jul 4 2014 - 8 m at 4 pm on the FOURTH! (View Original Event Details)|
It was a great afternoon to be hiking, and it was a wonderful group to be hiking with! We followed the plan of starting promptly at 4 pm and covering 8 miles. We had a brand new member - - Kelli - - who did amazingly well on her very first AOC event. (Welcome to the club, Kelli!) Parking was ample, the weather was warm but not uncomfortable, a breeze could be felt now and then, and the trails were relatively dry. And as hard as I tried, I couldn't leave anyone behind! (Libby would have done a better job of losing folks had she been leading!) What a fit group!
Libby borrowed my camera to take some shots from the sweeper's perspective, so we got pictures from the front and the back.
Happy Fourth of July, everyone! ~ Joyce
