The weather was decent for a November day – temperatures in the 40’s with the sun trying to peak through the heavy cloud cover. Nine of us followed the trail through Nebraska Notch and continued on to Taylor Lodge where we spent a while eating lunch and conversing. The woods were very quiet as the deer and the hunters were hiding in anticipation of the upcoming hunting season. Usually Pete Saile is the only male on our Friday hikes, but on this day we had two men, as Mike Banks joined us. We all agreed that the Friday hikes are delightful, and that we want more.

Participants – Sara Burghoff, Lee Ann Banks, Mike Banks, Patty Williams, Barbara Howard, Pete Saile, Jean Anderson, Elise Eaton, Linda Evans.
