Report to Hikers: week of Dec 3-Dec 9

Hello Hikers!

Wed Dec 5

Ellis Hollow Nature Preserve

Shortly after we set off, we came to a stream that’s normally slightly tricky to cross, but by no means impossible  —  this time it was so full we couldn’t see a way across  —  one hiker tried but had to turn back half way  —  then he fell in trying to get back to shore  —  fell sideways, landed on his hip, and wet half his body.  He had to head right back to the car.  This is the site of the accident  —  we swung by later in the walk so I could get a shot 

Gopi is demonstrating exactly how the hiker was standing when he toppled in

After the falling hiker went back, the rest of us pushed on.
