Write Up:
Mistakes happen . . . and today's was embarrassing! Holt's 200th celebration rock was painted in the colors of his alma-mater - - however, I had him connected to the wrong college! The rock colors were those of his rival, Virginia Tech, instead of his school - - Virginia. No wonder there was such an awkward silence when he saw the rock!

And then there was the other mistake - - losing half the group because I failed to check behind when we made a turn in the trail. (Fortunately, we found them when we backtracked.)  

Otherwise, it was a great celebration hike, and Holt even earned praise for providing historical information on the ruins and for leading the second half of the hike!

We welcomed Bonnie, a newcomer to the AOC. The MLK holiday enabled her to join ua today. ~ Joyce
