Weather Update for Sunday afternoon: Expected to be very nice! Clear & springlike, with comfortable temperatures near 60 during the event. - Charlie
We'll gather a few minutes before 1:30 PM in the free parking lot at Frazier-Rowe Park —see detailed directions below. After introductions we'll explore the park's beautiful woodland trails, stopping often to regroup and to observe and photograph the wildlife and colorful trees & flowers. By about 2:45 we should be back at the trailhead beside our cars, where we expect to be able to claim a couple of the big picnic tables for our group meal and sing-along. We'll target being done with everything by 4:00 PM. Feel free to "split" at any earlier time that's convenient - but please let us know when you do so.
POTLUCK PICNIC SUGGESTIONS: As mentioned above we'll plan to take possession of a couple of the large picnic tables at the Frazier-Rowe trailhead by the parking lot. Any of our food & drink items that need refrigeration can be left in iced-down coolers in our vehicles until we begin the picnic.
p.s. Riddle: What's Irish and comes in handy for backyard St. Pat's Day picnics?
