Huntington Museum of Art trails and Ritter Park-March 26, 2017

April 4th, 2017 Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Huntington Museum of Art trails and Ritter Park-March 26, 2017

We thought that the rain would hold out until after the hike.  However, the rain had a mind of its own and we had to hike in a heavy down pour during the last ten minutes of our hike.  Please notice the pictures of the stone art  which were located along the trail.  Several of the hikers had dinner at Nawab Indian Cuisine.  Good food and good company after a hike make the day better.

As you can see in the group picture, our hikers were prepared for possible rain.  The Babcock Mill appears to have an abundance of water flowing by the water wheel and the skies look grey.  Fortunately, the rain held back and everybody enjoyed the hike.  We can thank Coleen for the pictures and Barb and Christy for leading the hike.

This was an unusual warm, sunny, Sunday hike.  Please notice  the bird eggs and the lightly clothed hikers.  It is nice to enjoy a spring like hike at  the beginning of March.  Thank you Rose and Roger for the beautiful pictures and Lois for leading the hike.

Some of the hikers named this the rain hike instead of the soup hike.  Whatever, everybody enjoyed the hike and the several different kinds of hot soups, bread, crackers and desserts.  We can thank Sherry for decorating the lodge and thank everybody who brought the soup and other good treats.

It  rained during most of the hike but our spirits were high and there were several pretty overlooks in the park and outside the park boundaries  Dan did a very good job leading his first hike for the club.  Several club members enjoyed dinner at Fratelli’s after the hike.

There were several rainy days before this hike so everybody had to be careful of slippery, muddy trails.  This was most important when hiking down steep grades.  However, there were not any falls and everybody had a good afternoon hike.

It’s good to hike even if the temperature is a little cold.  If you have the appropriate hiking attire and the proper attitude, an afternoon hike can be fun.  It looks like everybody in the picture reviewed the weather forecast and dressed appropriately.
