Our intimate group of five (Larry Cooper, Chris Hill, Jean Frost, Jessica Moore, and Joyce Taaffe) had perfect weather for our hike at Amicalola Falls State Park today - - overcast sky and cool temperatures.  We took the Len Foote Inn trail up and returned via the Appalacian Trail Access loop, observing a half-hour of silence as we began our hike.  We enjoyed the sounds of nature immensely! The Inn treated us to some delicious peach cobbler and blueberry tart, providing ample energy for the second half of our hike. Our hike down was made more special by our sighting of a half-dozen wild turkeys - - fattening up for Thanksgiving.  We concluded our afternoon with a stroll through the pumpkin patch at Burt's Farm.
