Saturday was gorgeous, and I wish every summer day was that nice. Fortunately, I planned to be outdoors, though I didn't plan the exact activity. I was waitlisted in the walk the Maryland Outdoor Club did that Erin went on. So, I planned to go to Great Falls after some searching online for some nice easy walks.
Ted and Angela met me at my place and we set off.
Afterwards, we did an easy 3 1/2 mile loop. About halfway through, you pass an abandoned gold mine. There's also a stretch where you follow an abandoned streetcar route.
The best part, by far, was the drinks we had afterward at the Irish Inn. As I was driving, I could only have one cider. We couldn't resist having some food too...all that "strenuous" hiking, you know!
After all that outdoors time, Ted and I topped off the day by meeting Liz for dinner alfresco at Cafe Berlin.
