Write Up:
The MOC enjoyed another trip along the Panther Branch Trail of the Gunpowder Falls State Park in Maryland. There was still a moderate amount of snow on the trail, but the group was hearty, and made the whole 4.5-mile trip! A small detour was made to see an abandoned house and 1950's vintage car. Two members brought dogs, who were very well-behaved and human/dog-friendly. They seemed to enjoy the snow tremendously!

A light snow welcomed us to the end of the hike, followed by delicious Kirchmeyer chocolates and wine-tasting at the Woodhall Winery.

Thanks to all the participants for their hearty hearts, and a lovely time!
