On Sunday September 22nd the Killarney Sprocket group and their families hiked the Fir Douglas Trail. The weather was beautiful, a warm and sunny day. After meeting at the playground and taking a quick group photo we started along the path. We soon entered an inner-city oasis filled with dense trees, wooden steps, handrails, streams, and some muddy sections. With some great team building most where able to cross the mud without losing a shoe. Job well done everyone! It was a great outing with happy faces all around.
