Historian's Picnic at Indian Rocks
Lisa and Jason Stanton with Jack and Alex (aka Daniel Boone)
Amy Burns and Libby Lamport
Colleen Heavey with Allison and Carley
Monica Liddle with Sylvia and Andrew
Julie Hilson and Mark Schneider with Hans and Gretel
Peter and Rebecca Manning with Finnegan
and yours truly
Jason was noting that I appeared to be related to most of the hikers, including Lisa, Colleen and Amy, who are third cousins, and my first cousin once removed, Jillienne. Through the Coulters, I'm related to Julie Hilson. It's possible I'm related to Monica, though I need to sort that one out. The Mannings appear, however, to be not related to me at all.
It was a cloudy and breezy day, but off we set and in about 40 minutes were were there. There were a few people who had never been there. Our youngest participant, was Finnegan Manning, while our oldest was yours truly. We all clambered to the top to eat and enjoy the views. On our trip back, we took a slight detour to see the other impressive rock formation that is to the left and above Indian Rocks. We all got back before 1 and just as the first drops of rain began.
Yes, we will do this again when there is better weather. But I was impressed with the number who did come. Thanks all! And thanks to Chuck McIntosh and Hope Schumejda for allowing us to hike on their land.
