    And Vlad - it was a book club, not the library. The Language of Flowers was the book - - and now we have more knowledge about the flowers we will see on the trails.

    Was my first time, and enjoyed it especially at night. Looking forward to the nature path next time. Pavement was good for my first time though.

    Thanks for having me, nice aggressive walk. Sweat at 34 degrees is good.

    Kelly, yes this is a paved trail. Still need flashlights, great for a brisk walk. Just don't have to worry about tripping over tree roots that I always seem to find!
