When my head imagines rugged ten mile hikes & wilderness adventures, my body just laughs. Can “hiking” start with walks through neighborhood parks, Cox Arboretum & the stagecoach trail at John Bryan? That high adventure Girl Scout is in there still.
As a first-timer, I was a bit over-eager. The four others in this small group were kind enough to adapt to my frequent pauses to "oooh" and "aaah" over blossoms, foilage, and trees. I really appreciate our tree expert . Hearing tree names and identifying their features is much more fun than reading tree-trunk-tags.
