Walk Report: C Walk to Red Bank, 18 February. Leaders: John Browne

Eighteen C walkers headed west to Red Bank for a delightful forest walk. Despite mist and clouds that never quite lifted, spirits were high as they made their way along the trail. The trees provided ample shelter. There was a certain Indiana Jones quality to it, but most of the mud was concentrated on the space where the cars were parked. The walk lasted 2.5 hours.
