Hello, Solemates,
If it looks like you’ll be staying in today or doing errands, you owe to yourself to join us tomorrow so that you may enjoy at least part of this beautiful weekend outside.
We’ll be going for a nice, pretty easy (1.5 blisters) hike (Oct 9) at Calvert Cliffs State Park. The hike, which was rescheduled from two weeks ago, will include some beach walking where you can search for shark teeth (the tooth, the whole tooth, and nothing but) and other fossils in the shifting sands of time and the Chesapeake. We’ll walk 5 to 7 miles in this very unique park that’s less than an hour from the Beltway.
Bring a lunch and water bottle. We’ll meet at the Branch Av Metro Station Kiss & Ride lot at 9 am (look for a brown Prius) to carpool. Leaders are Chris Stoughton and me.
Around the bend:
Sun. Oct. 16. Paddling the Anacostia River Water Trail. We’ll see Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, Kenilworth Marsh, and National Arboretum, among other highlights. Contact me about rental cost and other info.
Sat. Oct. 22. Maryland Heights & Harpers Ferry. Moderate (2.5 blisters) hike to popular hiking venue with great views of the area in its full fall glory.
Sun. Oct. 23. Fall General Meeting of Sierra Club Potomac Region Outings. Features discussions of issues and upcoming events, and special presentations. Leaders, prospective leaders, participants of SCPRO outings, you, and the public are invited; 3 – 5:30 pm. Contact me for more info and directions.
Wed.-Sun. Oct. 26-30. Hiking the Lower Hudson Valley. [masked] blisters, moderate-difficult) Hiking heaven with spectacular views during peak fall foliage. Three days of hiking, and one of sightseeing, staying in stone cottages in Bear Mountain State Park, NY. Space is limited and deposit is required, so ask me for more info now.
Sat.-Sun. Nov. 12-13, 8 am-6 pm. Wilderness First Aid (WFA). To register, visit
Sat. Dec. 3. Antietam Hike and Illumination. Moderate (2.5 blisters) afternoon hike of Civil War Battlefield, followed by Memorial Illumination drive, and optional dinner (with reservations) at historic inn.
