Mon, Feb 18 2019 - Monday Morning at Cochran Shoals (Beginners Welcome) (View Original Event Details)|
We missed Trena on today's hike. Her weekend race took a toll on her and sleeping in seemed like a good option for this morning. What a gift of great weather we had this for our hike! The rain from yesterday left the trails wet, but we did our best to stick to high ground using the trails in Sope Creek which were drier. We did okay.
Today was special! James Hill celebrated his 100th event, and we had two newbies on our hike - - Alan and Sally - - each with just one prior AOC event! Welcome to the AOC, both of you!
There are so many downed trees in the Cochran Shoals section! Some places looked like a war-zone. What a shame to see such desolation.
The rest of the week looks rather bleak for good weather. Today's sunshine was wonderful! ~ Joyce
