Hello Hikers!


Wednesday Aug 2

South Danby Road westward on the FLT to the Abbott Loop, Danby SF

This drainage ditch was recently deepened  —  the three-plank bridge tilts in two directions  —  very challenging if you have balance problems

Jack B is our second-oldest hiker  —  he’ll be 83 in the fall  —  never uses or needs a pole

Official head count:  19H, six D

You can see Annie’s photos here

Sunday August 6

Stevens Suspension Bridge, Forest Home, to the north side of Fall Creek in Monkey Run

In this photo, we’re on the rim of one of the sheer bluffs that fall away dramatically to Fall Creek, which you can see below in the background.  Annie has four shots in her nature album that give you a good idea of what’s happening along this stretch of the trail.

Official head count:  28H, 10D
