Write Up:
With the winds forecasted to be blowing at 30 to 50 miles an hour and wind chill forecast of 28 degrees, I was not sure what to expect the morning of the hike. Given the weather forecast, seventeen MOCers and one lucky dog showed up for the Susquehanna Hike. Despite the forecast, the weather turned out not to be an issue. Most of the hike was in the woods and with the trees and hills blocking the wind, the temperature was close to 40 degrees. The wind chill was only a factor as we made our way across the hay field, but that was short enough and then we were back in the woods. This made for a nice leisure Sunday hike, with some good views and lots of nice people to converse with as we hiked. After the hike, fifteen of us decided to continue the good time by have an after hike mid afternoon meal at Coakley’s in Havre De Grace. I called ahead to make sure they could handle the group and they were able to with no problem.

Thanks all for coming out and making this another great MOC hike.
