One of the trip leaders (Okay - - I confess) got her signals crossed and went to Cochran Shoals for the hike instead of Island Ford!  I was alerted to my error before the hike, but was 5 minutes late getting to the correct trail head.  The folks we so forgiving - - though they did try to put a scare into me by hiding as I arrived!  All good fun.  We welcomed two newbies to the AOC - - Isaac and Paulina - - who kept up beautifully on this fast-paced hike.  We covered 5.5 miles in less than 1:45, inccluding a stop at the Visitor's Center - - quite a nice workout! And the Stairway to Heaven was a nice little challenging addition.  ~  Joyce
