Wednesday, November 21, 2018 – Meadowlark Trail
Phase 1. Our fearsome foursome created a new Humpday annual tradition: hiking the high plains the day before Thanksgiving, followed by dinner at Flatiron Crossing (or thereabouts). We walked 3.85 miles as the moon rose nearly full, illuminating the trail sans headlamps. Twas a bit chilly, as it should be in November, but not much wind to speak of, and a gaggle of airplanes landing at the nearby Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (BJC).
Phase 2. Gordon Biersch, for burgers and growlers.
Phase 3. In situ, coffee and sumptuous desserts.
