First Day Hike!
|A total of 70 adventurous souls took advantage of a balmy New Year's Day to hike at Soldiers Delight|
|PVSP Naturalists Katie Crane and Courtney Birkmeyer lead the way at SDNEA's First Day Hike on the Serpentine Trail|
The turnout was great! A total of 45 adults and 25 children followed Katie and Courtney's careful instructions to walk in single file along the sometimes muddy trail, careful to tromp through puddles on the trail and not around them so as to minimize trail encroachment into the sensitive habitat on either side of the winding path. Children and adults happily obeyed those requests, splashing through the mud puddles in childlike innocence and wonder as they made their way through winter meadows on a surprisingly mild and pleasant afternoon.
What is your new year's resolution for 2019? While our visitor center is closed to the public for renovations until the beginning of March, why don't you resolve to enjoy our diverse and beautiful trail system while soaking up the healthy benefits and wild beauty of a truly special habitat?
Happy new year from your friends at SDCI!
