Xtreme13: Hiking Great Falls

Xtreme13 was on the move again. Sunday we went hiking a trail in Great Falls park located in Potomac, MD.  As always we invited a group of friends to join in on the fun. This was a first time for most of us including myself. Black folks just don't hike. Well, we changed that stereotype today, 10 people at a time! We met up at 8:30 in the morning and rode to the park caravan style. We all had a variety of "gear" to make our experience a good one. What I should have had were a pair of gloves with good grip and a bee keeper's hat to kip the gnats out of my face. SERIOUSLY! I'm sure I ate at least 4 bugs with 2 flying in my ear and 2 more flying up my nose. NOT COOL! Needless to say, I did a lot of screaming and ducking and swatting. I survived though.
