We couldn't have asked for a nicer day for a hike along the Greenway. Not only did we have gorgeous weather; we also encountered only two bicycles. Birding seemed de rigeur for several participants on today's hike, although ice on the ponds eliminated the usual congregations of ducks. We ate lunch at the Harvest Restaurant in Talent, and everyone agreed that the food was very good. Half the group returned to Ashland by bus, the other half by spousal pick up.
