Al Gamache and his small group decided to join the Larison Creek hikers,
bringing our number to sixteen.
A new trail has been added so now Larison Creek trail extends six miles,
so the sign told us.
John Cecil, Robin Steussy, Betty Legris, and Mike Wright started off at a fast
pace, intending to hike the entire twelve mile round trip.
Which they did.
However, the last part of the trail was not yet constructed.
They followed a ribboned obstacle course over and under and around logs, rocks,
brush and streams.
The rest of the group hiked about 4½ miles to a pleasant picnic spot by the creek.
Enjoying the sun, the forest and the creek were:
