Friday February 24
Meet at 9:30 at SW corner of the Silver Reef Casino. We’ll walk the trails and roads to the Lummi Dike area, possibly 5 miles total. ‘Members-only’ soup social after the hike – more info will be sent closer to the event. Contact Bob & Kim, email@example.com.
Friday was an overcast, chilly morning when 18 club members started off to walk the dike on the Lummi reservation. The marshlands presented us with perched and soaring eagles, rough legged hawks, harriers, meadowlarks, and various waterfowl. Cliff presented us with a potentially close brush with the newly expanded authority of the border patrol, but he soldiered on (and hid his tall frame) when a suspicious, black SUV with exempt plates slowly made its way through the crowd of us brazenly marching (trudging?) up the middle of the road. For an alternative-truth version of this story, seek out someone who was on the hike.
