As you can see in the group picture, our hikers were prepared for possible rain.  The Babcock Mill appears to have an abundance of water flowing by the water wheel and the skies look grey.  Fortunately, the rain held back and everybody enjoyed the hike.  We can thank Coleen for the pictures and Barb and Christy for leading the hike.

Some of the hikers named this the rain hike instead of the soup hike.  Whatever, everybody enjoyed the hike and the several different kinds of hot soups, bread, crackers and desserts.  We can thank Sherry for decorating the lodge and thank everybody who brought the soup and other good treats.

It  rained during most of the hike but our spirits were high and there were several pretty overlooks in the park and outside the park boundaries  Dan did a very good job leading his first hike for the club.  Several club members enjoyed dinner at Fratelli’s after the hike.

There were several rainy days before this hike so everybody had to be careful of slippery, muddy trails.  This was most important when hiking down steep grades.  However, there were not any falls and everybody had a good afternoon hike.

It’s good to hike even if the temperature is a little cold.  If you have the appropriate hiking attire and the proper attitude, an afternoon hike can be fun.  It looks like everybody in the picture reviewed the weather forecast and dressed appropriately.

The day was a little chilly but after hiking up a few hills, you can warm up quickly,  The overlooks were very pretty which made the steep ascents well worth the effort.  Several club members enjoyed dinner at Fratelli’s after the hike.  We can thank Cathy for leading the hike and Roger for taking the pictures.
