A Journey With The Hiking Club

Come with us on an adventure!

March 16, 2014

After an unusually rough winter, there finally was a good day for hiking. The destination today for the Club Fit Hiking Club, was Sprout Brook Park in Peekskill. The temperature was only in the 30s, but the sun made it feel warmer.

At the beginning of the hike, some people looked like Star Wars characters, in their multiple layers of clothing.

There were hiking sticks left at the beginning of the trail for people to borrow, for those who did not own sticks or had spouses who drove off with their poles in their car.

There was a variety of conditions on the trail. We walked over small streams

over some mud and snow, but most of the trails were in pretty good condition.
People doing Hiking and a tree
Like all Club Fit hikes, there was time for jokes (not sure if Abby is attacking the tree, or pretending to attack our leader),

We stopped for lunch, and a chance for more conversations. Some were discussing life in Colorado, Abby seems to be describing something with her hands. Many thanks to her for the delicious no-bake cookies, and trail mix.

Many of us felt warm enough by lunch time, to take off our hats and gloves.

One person took a selfie too, to post on Facebook, all while Molly patiently waited.

It was a fun day, and a nice place to explore. Thank you, Andrew, for getting us outside and for leading such a great hike. Thank you too to Frank for acting as our sweep. The next Club Fit Hike will be the annual frog one, held in early April. Hope the weather is even better for that hike.
