Report to Hikers: week of Oct 7-Oct 13

Hello Hikers!

Wed Oct 9

Yellow Barn SF, Dryden

Official head count: 22H, five D


Sat Oct 12

Van Lone Hill Loop, Catharine

Another case of, “Hey! it wasn’t supposed to rain until later!”

Official head count: 13H, one D

Get-together at Randy and Nancy’s

It started to rain pretty briskly as we drove from the trail head to Randy and Nancy’s, and I wondered if the bad weather would discourage people from coming to the get-together, but a number of people who hadn’t hiked showed up

Randy skipped the hike and stayed home creating a variety of fancy tapas-style hors d’oeuvres. Nancy made a cake and created some tapas-style vegetarian relishes. Everyone loved the food. It was drizzling outside and there was a fire inside and it was wonderfully cozy and fun.


Sun Oct 13

Michigan Hollow Road southeast on the FLT to Hill Road and beyond, Danby SF

I decided we’d start out doing the very short first leg of the hike on the road, so Tiger could get a couple of photos. Once we stepped into the woods the light was impossible for taking photos — none that Tiger got was worth using, IMO

Official head count: 23H, three D
