Write Up:
The carpool location was missing. Disappeared. Hecht's no longer exists at Security Mall. Luckily the shopping experts among us knew the Macy's used to be Hecht's. The air was a bit chill at the carpool, but warmed up some by the time we got to Big Gunpowder park. After trying to used the restrooms (they were locked) and finding the right trail we were on our way along river. The hike soon turned into a neuroscience conference. Who knew the MOC had so many neuroscientists and they all showed up for this hike. After a couple miles we crossed to the north side of the river. We reached where we started the hike, only on the other side of the river. Kevin realized he may not make it home in time and wanted to head out, but the cars were on the other side of the river. He waded across the knee deep river. The rest of us enjoyed lunch. Afterwards Maria showed Paul how to floss. Paul continued to floss as he walked. He was really enjoying it. We continued down the river and saw several blue herons gliding majestically above the river. We enjoyed a nice waterfall and the crossed the river again. On the way back to the car, Sarven got caught having fun by his boss. After the hike we enjoyed dinner at Padonia Station.
