Nine happy hikers left the Patapsco Valley State Park swinging bridge
parking lot promptly at 6:00 pm venturing out on a lovely 5.28 miles
after work workout hike. We initially got slowed down by a group of
geriatrics walking with their guide from the DNR. Agility and youth
were on our side as we quickly jumped around them as we hopped from
rock to rock crossing the Cascade Falls stream. We continued up the
hill and along the Cascade Falls Trail which led us to the Morning
Choice Trail, and eventually returning on the Ridge Trail. For those
keeping track and yearn for statistics, during the first half of the
hike we averaged 3.7 mph. Maybe it was due to the very graceful and
impossible to repeat flying fall by Mellissa who somehow managed to
catch her foot in just the right way on this 18” stick to eject her
up into the air and landed on her hands without injury! Gold stars
for her bravery and continued fast pace after the incident. By the
end of the hike we average a respectable 3.4 mph, covering 5.28 miles
in just 1 hour and 33 minutes. Ariving back to our cars with plenty
of sunlight (at 7:34 pm)
Continuing with the (new) tradition of doing something different we
ventured to a (not to be named, as it rated poorly in the author's
opinion) Greek restaurant in Catonsville; which provided few Greek
choices on the menu! Seven of us joined in for the after hike
festivities, conversation, and necessary consumption of large
quantities of food.
Sorry, there will be no pictures of this event. For multiple reasons:
1) the leader hates pictures
2) We were moving too fast for the camera to capture us on film
3) And no one thought to bring a camera !
Thanks to all !
