Two Trails and a New Friend

  So, last night I stayed with a trail person near Toledo that I had sort of met previously, but didn't really know her at all. As it turns out, Marianne and I have an awful lot in common, and we talked forever.

This morning, we had time to catch a couple of short hikes. One of the trails is the Juliet Gordon Low Trail. She is the lady who started the American Girl Scouts in 1912. In 1917, Toledo, Ohio, was chartered as the very first Girl Scout Council.

In the past few years, a local troop took on the project of creating a trail through a local metropark. It's about a mile long, and Marianne took me there to walk it. Juliet Gordon Low trail Marianne also told me some really good news- that Girl Scouting is starting to come back to its roots and is including more outdoor activities again.
