    Thanks for organizing !! Jenny was just a great leader and it was very much appreciated that she traveled up from the Brecksville reservation on a rainy chilly morning to guide us through and educate us about this fairly new metro-park

    The naturalist Jenny showed us wildflowers: jack in the pulpits, may apples, and trout lilies. Fun.

    Great chance to explore this new little MetroPark. Respectable turnout for an overcast day; appreciated having the guidance of a naturalist.

    The rain ended just in time! Glad to see this area becoming park land.

    This will be my first activity with the group---- not sure of the procedures for cancelling if the weather is bad. If it's raining, I'm going to wimp-out this morning :-(

    If anyone feels too virtuous after the exercise and wants some vice as well, Mitchell's ice cream (and fruit smoothies) is right across the street.

    I am unable to attend this hike on Saturday. I have my last Anatomy and Physiology test on Monday and I will be at the lab. This hike is led by a naturalist, so there will be the naturalist leading the hike. Have a good hike.
