Write Up:

Strawberries were in season! Fourteen hikers and three dogs descended on Delaplane, Va. this past Sunday for a day of hiking and strawberry picking. The day started with a seven mile hike at Sky Meadows. With sunny skies overhead, the dogs (and some hikers too) frolicked in the fields. The hike also featured special appearances by: baby lambs and goats near the Bleak House at the start of the hike, and cows grazing along the Piedmont Overlook trail at the end.

After the hike, we headed to Hollin Farms for pick-your-own strawberries and spring vegetables. Swiss chard, beets, lettuce, and radishes made their way into some MOC hands, but most everyone headed to the strawberry fields. With baskets overflowing, several hikers capped off the day with a scoop of ice cream. All in all, a great day to be outside.
