Well we managed to claw and scrape our way, once again, to the top of Fall Creek Mountain. Our annual birthday hike. Just to remind ourselves that we our still young enough to do it. This year we had some new people. Patrick Rodysill, and his pup Tess practically ran up, young whippersnapper as he is. Nan Patmount and Arthur Saul also joined us plus some friends of Stephen and Janelle … Art and Janet. A glorious day topped off with a swim in Island Lake at the end. Kate was in fine form as always, right near the front of the pack. It did seem a little harder this year than last. Oh well.. to be expected I guess.
