The weather report was not promising for our hike up Mt. Pisgah.
Seven of us in our rain jackets and hats started up the trail. As we
neared the top, the wind began to howl. Bonnie Richman inquired,
“Pardon, me, but are we near the summit of Mt. Everest?” We didn’t stay
long on top! On the way down, Margaret shared her impression, “The rain
is pouring like cold bullets.” It was the third hike for nonmembers,
Margaret and Richard Essenberg, who now have signed membership
applications. It was Lena Houston’s first trip as a member. Others on
the trip were Pat Soussan, Barb Revere, and Janet Jacobsen.
