Stroll thru Jenkins Arboretum

On Thursday, May 6th, 17 Buck Ridge hikers strolled through the blooming azaleas at Jenkins Arboretum. We took our time to leisurely appreciate the many varieties and colors of the blooms. Since this was our first planned activity since COVID, we lounged on their outside deck afterward, snacked, and just relaxed in the sunshine each other’s company. What a glorious day!!
    

Hike at Tyler Arboretum

The weather was perfect on May 27th when 15 Buck Ridgers gathered to do a moderate 5 mile hike at Tyler Arboretum.
Paul Pitts led the group to the serpentine barron, named for greenish bedrock, a result of the crashing of tectonic plates over the 480 million years ago.  Serpentine rock is typically found on the bottom of oceans. The serpentines are rich in many minerals, as a result, they are home to rare plants and pollinators. We ate lunch at a beautiful rocky section of Rocky Run creek.
Near the end of the hike we passed through Tyler’s nationally known rhododendron collection, many of which were still in bloom. We checked out the edible garden and ended with a cool and shady walk through the woodland garden.

Our Buck Ridge Bowling outing on October 14th at Covid Ready at Thunderbird Lanes in Warminster was a great get away from the virus. Buck Ridgers, Elaine and Dave, were great hosts. We look forward to when many more can be together again and enjoy a fun time out at the lanes. 

Here’s a video about how Thunderbird Lanes is dealing with the pandemic. Stay safe.

 

 

Buck Ridgers, did you go on the Buck Ridge Ski Club Gray Rocks trips oh so long ago? We went for years. Here’s a couple videos of our trips that you may enjoy. As they say, a fun time was had by all.
