What a fabulous day!
I'm so glad that I decided to join the Hiking Buddies Group. We were meeting at Enniskillin Conservation Area @ 10am, for our hike. It was a beautiful 35 minute car drive across Durham's rural country side with its rolling hills and farms.
I was one of the first to arrive, but it didn't take long for the remainder of the group to show up. On this particular day, we were 26 participants. Most of us decided to rent a pair of snowshoes for $5. The group was divided into "slower" and "speed-walkers" groups. I joined 4 other speed-walkers that, like myself, were looking for a bit of a challenge. What a nice bunch of people, friendly and chatty. Felt like I'd know them for a long time.
After a 2 hour hike through a beautiful evergreen forest, we joined the rest of the group back at the "building" for a pot-luck lunch.
What a feast! Pulled pork on a bun, chili, meatballs, potatoes, cheese and crackers, coffee, juice, and dessert.
I had such a great time; I will most definitely join Hiking Buddies on another outing!
