Ridley Creek State Park - First Picnic of Spring!
Today was a beautiful day for a hike in Ridley Creek State Park and a picnic. Highs were in the mid sixties and the day was sunny and bright, although cool in the shade. We started the day with a nice long hike. The undergrowth is beginning to turn green, and a few early wildflowers are appearing. I had to adjust the straps of my backpack because they no longer have to accommodate a heavy winter coat, which was a great feeling! After our hike, we had a picnic: grape leaves, hummus, pita, olives, vegetable sushi, roasted vegetables, fruit, rice crispie treats (from Vive Le Vegan), and more. A few of us brought some kites and also tossed a frisbee around. It was a wonderful start to the Spring hiking season!

Pixie made the rounds looking for some handouts. I think she got some!
