Hiking at Bluebell Path
It was a perfectly lovely day for our hike along the Bluebell Path in Bull Run
. Chris, Debbie, and Marilyn encountered some not so ferocious wild things that we, sadly, did not record on camera. (There was a group of fantasy players dressed up and searching for "loot")
This walk is a good one for people who do not get out much and who may not have a whole day for a hike. It's a flat and easy path. We walked for almost an hour and did a loop. Next time we will head down Bull Run and turn around when we felt we've had enough.
Marilyn Holbeck, Christine Meloni, and Debbie Fosaaen went hiking at Bull Run Park.
