Fawn Lake

October 7, 2000

Twelve of us hiked up to Fawn Lake on a beautiful, warm fall day. It was sunny and over 70° all day. The beginning of the trip was a big adventure. Janet and I had hiked the trail last year and remembered hiking on the ski trail for the first mile, so that’s what we did. We must have had to climb over 1000 trees before finding the real trail. We found the right trail on the way back. After lunch at the lake most of us hiked around the lake. On our way back I told everyone of the fine desserts to be had at the lodge if we could get there before the dinner crowd. The group picked up the pace and the visions of warm pie a’la mode kept us going on this long 8-9 mile hike. As we neared the lodge we saw what looked like a big wedding party around the cabins and lodge. We began to get worried about the promised pie. As we turned the corner and neared the lodge we sensed our doom. The lodge was roped off so dirty hikers like us couldn’t enter. In spite of no pie, we all had a great time. There were six non-members on the trip and most are now anxious to join, go on more trips, and go to summer camp. The day ended with Janet bringing some apple pie over to my house which we ate before an hour-long soak in my new hot tub. What a wonderful day it was! Hikers were Janet Hall, Yuan Hopkins, Barbara Shomaker, Barbara Bruns, Barbara Sutherlin, Jerry Brindle, Peter Rodda, Vincenza Scarpaci, Sharon Jacobs, Janet Reed, Carol Harrison and Diane Jeffcott, leader.
