Write Up:
This easy hike was one of the first conducted as the club opened, operating under Covid protocols. With a limit of 6, 5 attended after one bowed out the night before. At one point there had been a waitlist of 1. It was a superb late spring day. Fullarton Loop is an excellent hike for viewing wildflowers and a half dozen species were evident. I would recommend taking this hike in another 2 weeks, as there will be many more wildflowers out at that point. Our pace was moderate to slow, as we took lots of time to enjoy the day and identify flowers. For other coordinators, the following observations may be useful on the chance you are considering offerings trips while Covid continues to be a presence. Our hike started at 0930. When we were finishing at 1200, the parking lot was near full and many people were starting hikes. This seems to be a trend on other hikes I have been on this last 2 weeks, as things start to open up. Parking lots also fill up faster because groups, like ours, are not car pooling. I'm certainly giving consideration to time and place for my future offerings.
