Let’s Find Some Rocks and Logs to Play With

Two weeks ago, YHC Q’d the workout at the Smokehouse with the intention of getting back to the nature center play area to make use of the stacks of logs and rocks back there.  Unfortunately, I got distracted many times on the way there and when we finally got there we didn’t have time to use the coupons. Not so today, we didn’t even hang around the parking lot for warmup.  3 pax headed out to find something to lift.
