This group of 11 knew a good thing when they saw it. Clearing sky and no rain! We Walked the LaPlatte River Marsh Natural area, a small part of the Ti-Haul trail, then the Shelburne Bay Clarke Trail and Allen Hill trail, including a bold summit of Allen Hill (250 feet, maybe??) with its great views of Shelburne Bay. The Nature Conservancy and Green Mountain Power have cleared years worth of invasive undergrowth from the Ti-Haul trails leaving open viewing into the LaPlatte. We had out lunch on the rocks of Shelburne Bay – a few sailboats are still in the water.

Thanks to all who made it! Lynda, Robynn, Rowena, Dot, Don, Don, Max, Carolyn, Jennifer, Mary and trip leader Ted.
