Write Up:

Hurricane Cindy has produced some significant rain in the area today, but we were lucky to have a "relatively" rain-free hike. No precipitation at all for an hour and then some light drizzle that barely reached the trails as we hiked under the heavy tree cover. In fact, we passed a large group of volunteers who were doing trail maintenance close to the upper parking lot. 

We had several adds and drops at the last minute, but ended with - - despite a gloomy weather forecast - - 16 members who were anxious to get out and get some exercise. 

We welcomed Joy, a last-minute registrant, who hiked with our Thursday morning group for the first time today. It's always nice to see new faces on these hikes - - and to expand our large hiking family. 

I appreciate Shirley and Gloria for sweeping today in Carol's absence. Good job, ladies.

Eight of us enjoyed lunch at the North River Tavern after the hike, where we hoped that Dan would join us as a D-Zero participant. Sadly, he was a no-show.
