Write Up:
Given that snow/rain showers both preceded and followed Sunday's event at Delaware's Lums Pond State Park, we were fortunate to work the hike in between. No rain gear was needed, though we did encounter the expected muddy portions of the trail. Our group completed the 7.5 mile Swamp Forest circuit in a little over three hours.

After the trek we regrouped at the local Red Robin in nearby Glasgow for a late lunch. Here it seemed the wait for a table befitting our group size might take longer than the hike itself. Eventually we were seated and the service thereafter was adequate, apart from a rather long wait for those of us who chose to order Yuengling drafts.
