We enjoyed the afternoon. Appreciated being able to ride in the open car. Were not able to hear the gentleman there giving instructions as to where to look for eagles, nests or deer... The boxed lunch was better than expected, except the minimal amount of turkey on sub. Great chips, apple, and cookie. All staff were lovely.
