Write Up:
A very sunny and very hot day, luckily we managed to get the hike in before it got too hot. The hike itself was not that long, and is a pleasant couple of hours' jaunt. We met at the new visitors center (my directions to the old luckily didn't phase too many people...) and headed over to the hike site, one of several in the park that are separated by various farm properties (and I-270). The addition of Civil War-era headgear on my part added a bit of 19-century ambience to the event. After spending an enjoyable outing on the trail, we headed into Frederick to a Mexican restaurant downtown and had lunch on the patio (while Zena waited patiently outside, since canines are no longer allowed in the outside dining area). Thanks to all who came out, and hope everyone had a nice time. Colin Babb
