Monthly Stroll - July 21st - Hiram M. Chittenden Locks

This month we'll visit the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks

AKA: Ballard Locks.

Thanks to those who voted, the 12:30 time slot won.

 

We will meet at the main gates in the parking lot at 12:30pm. Then head over to the Visitors Center to catch the 1:00 tour of the Locks and Botanical Gardens. After the tour, for those who want to check out the concert at 2:00, can do so, otherwise we'll head out and explore.

And for those interested, on the South side of the Locks, there is a bike/foot trail that leads up to the top of Magnolia that we can check out. Road it once many years ago. I'm pretty sure it's in the shade :-)

    Thanks Leilah for organizing this event! I unexpectedly ran into my sister and her friends who were having a pot luck at the concert. So I got some free food and missed the Lockspot! I never tire of the Locks! It is such a beautiful place and the scene is always changing. See you next time!

      Sounds like you need a "Big Ben" wind-up alarm clock! It big and LOUD. And you place it *across* the room so you have to get out of bed to shut it off! It's loud. Your neighbours and roommates will love you...

    • Rishi

      Big Ben might work.... Might
