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.
