FEBRUARY HIKE

Winter 2014 - Waldrip House

A great time was had by all. Particularly due to Cathy Meyer's and Suzanne Roberts' historical and first person input. Nothing like having a family member put names to the faces in historical photos. "And, up in the second-floor window is where my mother sat!"

As we headed to warm ourselves with hot chocolate, on the right side of 446, Cathy Meyer spotted a red-shouldered hawk sitting on the ground. Did anyone in Bob's van see it? Impressive. A short hike filled with shared knowledge and warm experiences.
