Fall/Winter Rambles, 3.0
with Sam Horine, RSU 54/MSAD 54 Adult and Community Education
If you enjoy being outdoors in the winter, want to encounter lost trails or trails slightly off the beaten path, and share in good camaraderie, then Rambles 3.0 might be for you.
We will venture out on a trail within 40 miles of Skowhegan once a month between October and March to enjoy the changing seasons. Due to diminishing winter daylight all outings will start in the early afternoon.
Good walking shoes, warm winter boots, ice creepers, snowshoes, comfortable layered clothing, hats and mittens and a yen to explore are the essential elements needed.
Classes will meet on the second Tuesday of each month (dependent on the weather) and last about two hours.
There will be a short orientation meeting at SAHS on September 26. First ramble on Oct. 10.
