On the 19th, we were delighted to host the Frederick County Senior Recreation Council for a hike. For three miles, we explored ThorpeWood’s endless and beautiful trails. In addition to the great efforts by our lovely property manager, Jeff, the trails were also tended to by student volunteers from Heather Ridge School.
Our 32 hikers oohed and ahhed at the pine-needle bedded trails, the glistening pond, a dead sharp-shinned hawk, and our magical tee pee (left to us by the Maryland Theatre Ensemble). We discussed the weather predictions of wooly bears, the chestnut orchard, and so much more. This group was simply a delight. Every member was exceptionally grateful and kind. We hope to have them back again someday!
