Thank you for joining the hike. 12 people participated. I assume that everyone saw several new things during the hike. It could the buildings, the monuments, or the plants. I have lead the same route several times. Now I know about the lemon tree by the Strawberry Mansion, the shape of the magnolia fruits and it beautiful seeds. We found the several great ginkgo trees.
For those of you who could not come due to the tiredness or the pain. I hope you get better and join the event with us sometime soon. I lead this area twice a year if the conditions allow, but not all of them are posted on the Meetup site. If you would like to know more trips/events, you can join the Appalachian Club and receive a weekly e-mail of the upcoming activities within 2 weeks as well as the advanced notice of the main events or the multiple-day trip.

It seems there are several first timers. We will meet at a bench near the stop light at the Kelly Drive or somewhere between the buildings. I have a red backpack.
Everyone (AMC members, AMC Meetup-only members, non-member guests) needs to sign the sign up sheet before 9:30 AM. I will explain about the sheet at the beginning of the group activity.
See you tomorrow morning.

I just came back from the DV Chapter 6-days-trip (not listed in the Meetup). So far the weather seems to be OK. But in case of cancellation, please see this website. I will send you the cancellation notice to you, too.
R.J., haha... "quite a hike---" You're right. But there were few people came that way in the past.
