August 9, 2008
We gathered our large group in Springfield under misty skies and got
under way about 9. As we started our hike, the clouds gathered and we
were treated to a brief shower. We hiked at a fairly slow pace stopping
the admire the beautiful blue and turquoise waters of the lake as we
went. By the time we reached our lunch spot at the lodge, it was
clearing. We ate then made our way around the rest of the way around
the lake, enjoying the sunshine. We finished up about 2 p.m. and everyone
agreed it was a good hike and went their separate ways. Members hiking
were Jen Barnes, Nancy Whitfield, Virginia Rice and Karla Rusow.
Nonmembers joining us were Duane Charters, Dan Cole, Pat and Bill
Endicott, Robert Leppan, Peggy Dodds, Richie Haslag, Nate Thompson,
Tiffany Cavin, Claire Beekman, and Kim Skukas.
