Groundhog Day

Friday, February 2, 2018
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 6.3 miles, 739 ft (Moderate)

It was 65 degrees! The curious groundhog was peeping out from a garden of snowdrops or was it spring snowflakes?No one was bamboozled by this furry creature. Violets, crocuses and Lenten roses added color to our 40 minute self-guided walking tour of the tombstones and the stories of the people buried there. We made our way up to the Obsidian Lodge where we sat by the Obsidian Sprit mural to celebrate the leader’s birthday with strawberry bread and cider. Jorry pointed out the whimsical figures in the mural. It was hard to leave but we pushed on to the Ribbon Trail and Hendricks Park. For many it was the first time to visit to travel the back trails and sites. The trip took 3 hours. The meeting place needs to better defined: “The Main Gate with interpretive signs at 25th and University.”

Members: Janet Jacobsen, Dorene Steggell, Jorry Rolfe, Cynthia Poindexter, Esme Greer, Joel Greer, Sandra Larsen, Vicky Hanson, Mari Baldwin. Nonmembers: Rebecca Eastwood, Jerimi Paul- Burnside.
