Or so I seem to recall hearing at some point in my life. And to that end, congrats to the North Carolina State Parks system. I participated in the First Day Hike at Goose Creek State Park and it was a very good hike. The park superintendent was our guide and he passed on some very good knowledge about the park and about their plans for the future. The hike was not too long or too technical and so was enjoyed by a fairly large and varied group. Just a great way to start the year off. Let’s keep this #optoutside thing going.
