Hour Pond bonus hike ~ Aug 31, 2019

Journal entry by Scott Anderson

8 Canes joined me on a hike to Hour Pond near 13th Lake in the Siamese Ponds Wilderness.  It really felt like fall as is was dry and cool.  The wildflowers on the beaver dam were a bit muted, but a huge exotic caterpiller provided plenty of entertainment.

Thanks to Lori, Mary Mac, Margie, Jim R, Linda F, guests Mary-Beth and Joe Wagner and sweep extraordinare Jayne for joining me on a very nice day out in the woods.
