Write Up:
The day began as a winter wonderland (fancy that in February...) with a dusting of snow on the ground as we began the hike. As the day grew warmer, and global warming kicked in, the snow quickly melted away. We managed to avoid the unseen yet more than likely ever-vigilant eyes of W.'s earplugged watchdogs as we trudged close by the unmapped environs of Camp David. We also had little else to fear from sniffly noses, headaches, or other personal hygiene or health issues, for one of us came prepared with a traveling CVS store in her pack (or was it Walgreens??). Lo and behold upon returning to the parking lot, we discovered that her trunk contained an entire Sam's Club worth of pharmaceuticals (luckily, we kept them away from W.'s men as well). In the end, we all made it safely (with extra kleenex handy) back and enjoyed the always welcome board of fair of Brewer's Alley in Frederick.
