Reporting from the Trails – Academy Walk – October 13

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On the day after Thanksgiving, thirteen of us  were very grateful for the absolutely perfect Fall morning that greeted us for what turned out to be a  gorgeous 3-hour walk.  From our St. Clair meet-up, heading down the beautiful Avoca trail, crossing Mt. Pleasant Blvd then continuing along the Beltline Trail along Mud Creek  to the Brickworks.  Here a short rest stop, then heading north past the Brickwork’s many ponds up  Moore Park trails and into historic and beautifully landscaped  Mount Pleasant cemetery.  It was my pleasure to introduce the group to the gorgeous and brilliant displays of chrysanthemums and later to an  extraordinary sculpted weeping elm tree.  At the end of our walk, while half the group dispersed, six of us settled on the shady and very chilly patio of the Midtown Gastro Hub for a warming lunch.

Happy Trails!  Rene
