What a gorgeous day for a hike! We started out on the Azalea
trail--a short, one-mile loop. That proved to be just a warm-up
and we took off on the perimeter trail, as everyone was
chomping at the bit for more. Don't tell my orthopedist--we
ended up at 6.3 miles total for our "easy" hike. But it brought
out a lot of new people to the club for their first event. And
again, we definitely got a cross section of the Steves of the
club--maybe it's my events?
We finished up with lunch, then most people started to take off
with plenty of time for afternoon activities. Four of us
(including a Steve, of course) stuck around and tried for a
game of frisbee, but soon gave it up due to general lethargy
after the hike.
All in all, a great little hike within the beltway, mere minutes
from the northern suburbs of DC. Don't overlook the treasures
in your own backyard!
