Join us for a walk and a paddle, or “waddle,” a great hot summer outing. We’ll start with a gentle 6-mile three-loop hike (easy or 1.3 blisters) in a quiet, beautiful, but (fortunately) mostly ignored Ten Mile Creek area of Black Hill Regional Park. Highlights include lots of wildflowers, serene lake views, and lack of noise.
For those interested, we’ll then have lunch by the lake and rent boats (canoes, kayaks, or rowboats) and go for an afternoon swim. If staying for the paddle part, bring cash or plastic, or your own boat. Don’t forget a bag lunch and lots of water. Meet at Shady Grove Metro’s east side Kiss & Ride (the side with the parking garages; http://tinyurl.com/7qwfjbg).
