Groundhog Day

Thursday, February 2, 2017
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 4.5 miles, 739 ft (Easy)

Within a few minutes after our departure from the Masonic Cemetery main gate, we spotted a groundhog hiding by the Woodsmen of the World Monument. The shy groundhog seemed more interested in the squirrels than Obsidian hikers.,Another surprise was a large grave plot covered snowdrop flowers. We then headed up to the Obsidian Lodge and over to Hendricks Park ending back at Allann Brothers. We enjoyed drinking coffee with Bert Ewing, long time Obsidian, who shared stories and photos of climbs, goats, and marmots.

Members: Janet Jacobsen, David Hawkins, Dorene Steggell, Ruth Romoser, Evelyn Nagy.
