Thorn Creek/GSU Hike
March 26, 2022
Six hikers turned out on a very cold, windy day to hike the Thorn Creek Trail and then head over to Governor State University for a sculpture walk. The Thorn Creek portion of the hike can best be described as muddy, but fun or as very muddy, but fun. Due to the rain earlier in the week, these trails were difficult to navigate due to mud, mud, and more mud. There were portions slightly flooded and hard to cross. Needless to say, that did not deter adventurous hikers.
The same cannot be said for GSU. Although we knew it would not be muddy, we also knew we would be putting up with cold winds. Well, we lasted only a few minutes before deciding to proceed indoors for a warm, cozy indoor walk through the art galleries to view the student artwork on display. Although this was not the original plan, it worked out and we all enjoyed ourselves.
We then had a great lunch at Evil Horse/The Loft.
This was our final scheduled hike posted last fall. That does not mean we are done hiking, however. Look for more to come through announcements. As the weather warms up many of us will combine our biking activities with walks through the woods.
