Phil's Heritage Birthday Bash (Hike at Heritage Park, Farmington Hills)

  • Mar 22, 2014 · 12:00 PM

No, this doesn’t involve drinking and carousing. This is a 4.2 mile hike in Heritage Park, Farmington Hills. We will celebrate Phil's new decade, – while bashing up our boots a bit on the trails. (That’s the bash part.)  Bridge crossings, deer sightings, river overlooks - all good birthday stuff while looking for the spring blooms.  Meet at Heritage Park, turn west off of Farmington Rd. (between 10 & 11 Mile) turn left to the visitor center lot. Phil:  [masked]C.

Meet:  noon at Heritage Park - turn west off of Farmington Rd. (between 10 & 11 Mile); turn left to the visitor center lot.

    What a Great Hike! Actually - what a great prelude to a hike. The Birthday sun came out just in time as we gathered in the parking lot, and then MORE surprises - Joanne had made a sheet full of Birthday Cupcakes - carrot cake versions with lettering (Happy Birthday Philip) on the top of each cupcake - a rousing chorus of birthday wish singers ensued, cupcakes were passed out, and enjoyed by all. THEN, finally we started our hike in the last of the winters snow. Some trails were really slick, some were just slush, some bare. We made many stops for historical stories en-route, and breathers at the top of the (North Grand Canyon of Farmington Hills) 868 foot elevation. A lot of good conversations, laughs, and fun - thanks to all who made my Birthday really special! As I remarked - I have been practicing to be 50 for 20 years - I sure am glad to be there at last!
