Roger and Sharon led this hike. Let’s thank both of leaders for the fine hike and the fine pictures.
This was a new hike which was completed behind the Charleston Tennis Club
The hiking trails were well lay out and the hike was well led After the hike, we
enjoyed cold water and good conversation at the tennis club’s patio. We can
thank Chuck for leading the hike and Sharon for submitting the picture.
We had to shorten the hike a little because it was an unusually hot and humid day . The month of April brought extreme warm and cold weather so the hikers had difficulty adjusting to the temperature extremes. After a challenging hike, it was nice to be served cold drinks and refreshing fruits which were provided by Sharon. We can thank Roger for leading the hike.
This was an optional hike which consisted of a four mile hike or a three mile hike. Most of the hikers chose the shorter three mile hike. Along the trail there were several wild flowers in bloom for hikers to enjoy viewing Please notice the pictures of the Jack-in-the-Pulpits which were taken by Sharon.
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.
