Ramble Report April 16 2015

This post was written Dale Hoyt. The photos are by Don Hunter; more photos from this ramble are here.

Sixteen people braved the chilly (for April) weather this morning and we had a wonderful time.

Today's reading:
Emily read a poem, Letter to the Sun, by Joyce Sidman, from Butterfly Eyes and other Secrets of the Meadow, 2006, Houghton Mifflin. It was perfectly appropriate after two overcast, chilly days in the middle of April.
