Tongue Mountain through hike, Deer Leap-Clay Meadow ~ Apr 14, 2016

Journal entry by Lenore and Jack Reber

After wondering what the best replacement hike would be for Gooley Club, we and fifteen other Canes are happy we chose Tongue Mountain. The steady ascent and sunlight streaming through deciduous forest quickly warmed us. We were rewarded with occasional views of Lake George and Black Mountain along the high points and enjoyed the coolness of ice patches and patches of mosscovered rocks in the valleys. We enjoyed two excuses to eat, first a snack at the lean-to overlook and then lunch at another great viewpoint. Many waterfalls enticed us while we descended to the waiting cars. But before leaving, we crossed 9N and viewed the roaring waterfall which pounds around a curve before flowing another half mile into Northwest Bay. Thanks to Shelly, Ed, Carolyn, Ray, Jim, Joanne, Katie, Bob, Margie, Linda, Joy, Diane and Kurt, Jim and Jan.
