· Emily and Dale will lead a trail walk at Sandy Creek Nature Center (Nature Center, not the Park) on Tuesday morning, Dec. 3, at 9AM, followed by coffee, tea and homemade goodies. Everyone is invited!
· We are suspending our scheduled Rambles during the winter. The scheduled Rambles will resume on Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014, at the usual time and place.
· Dale or Hugh will be happy to have company whenever they ramble this winter. They will notify all the Ramblers of the date and time by email. (It is likely not to be early in the morning and the days/times may vary, depending on weather. Think of it as a group of friends just spontaneously getting together. The Ramble Reports will also be on winter hiatus.)
This week's report is written by Don Hunter with a few additions by Dale. The photos are sampled from a larger number that can be seen on Don's facebook album. (Be sure to find Don's molasses cookie recipe at the bottom of the post.)
This morning the frigid temps in the lower 20’s of last week were replaced by more seasonable temps in the lower 40’s with a only a slight threat of rain. Though it had rained lightly this morning in many of the areas surrounding the Bot Gardens, it remained dry as twenty-five Ramblers arrived at the Arbor for the last official Ramble of the season. Everyone was greeted with hot coffee and home-made banana bread and molasses cookies to enjoy during the pre-Ramble mingling and several readings. (The treats were compliments of Don!!)
