Avid hiker, Debby Evans and her “dear hiking buddy, Clara Tolbert”, will lead us on a gentle hike in West Rock Ridge State Park.
“I was born in swampy New Orleans in 1952. As a child I found my playground away from adult eyes, with a move to the Baton Rouge woods. Here was solitude, surprises, and animal companionship. Fast forward to adulthood and life in New Haven, CT, I became a sidewalk walker, not a stroller, but a woman who loves to daydream without purpose and walk briskly with purpose. Finally, in retirement years, I put the two things together that were in my bones; walking and the woods equaled hiking! And I lucked out to have a devoted, 4 seasons hiking buddy, in my dear Clara Tolbert.” Debby is a retired Adjunct Professor at Smith College School for Social Work.
