THE WALK AND RUN
This is a new area for the Athens Hash so there are extra countryside photos
Runners and walkers set off
Here come the walkers

We come to a brook with stepping stones
The stepping stones are wet and wobbly so the walkers turn back
across the first check dam in this valley
(Check dams slow water runoff velocity to reduce erosion and allows sediments to settle out)

Booked for 12 but we had 14 so spread to an adjacent second table
After the main course they brought out the birthday cake.
