Dippikill Hike ~ Oct 9, 2014

Journal entry by Nancy Kimball

Twenty-three caners took advantage of the crisp Fall air and almost peak foliage to hike the Dippikill loop, stopping for the views and photo ops along the trail. 80% of the group honored the Tom Gibbs tradition of walking silently for 15 minutes to commune more directly with nature.

There was some confusion about the designated lunch location but one of the former educators was successful in urging the group on to the official site by the lean-to at the pond. Good conversation, ideal hiking weather and wonderful scenery made for another outstanding event!!!
