Afton Weekend Workout

Long run on Saturday - almost 3 hours. We spent enough time at breakfast to get a late start, about 9:00.  The 7:00 group, John, Alicia, Karen, and Jim were hailed on and blasted by thunder and lightening. We were wet, tired and a little muddy by the time we finished.

Then we ran a shorter run on Sunday - just the snowshoe loop. Only one slippery spot. We didn't get as wet as Saturday.

For birds, heard a Brown Thrasher in a couple different places. I didn't bring the binoculars to identify an  interesting bird. It looked like a big chickadee, black head, white chest, singing up a storm. After we located it, it continued to perch high in the tree and sing its melodious song.

The Rue Anemone and Wild Violets are in full bloom. The ferns are starting to grow.

Then we were off to the Science Museum to see the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Omni film Arabia. We enjoyed both of them.
