A Path to Verse - Poetry of Place

The poetry of place is perhaps the most powerful. Join outdoor educator, author, poet, and walker Dan Murphy to explore “place” through the eyes of poet; through your eyes.  An hour and a half walk long trails and city streets with ten stops to inspire. No need to be a poet as we are all poets. Experienced and inexperienced writers welcomed.
