A hiking they will go

On Saturday, October 1st, a group of eight naturalists enjoyed a morning walk up behind the China Creek road.  We parked at the bottom of the Cinder Cone, and enjoyed a leisurely walk to the top.  The cone literally is composed of cinder and little grows up there.  Normally, there is a beautiful 360 degree view, but that morning the mist was low blocking most of the scenic destination.  We saw a few birds along the way, and on return to the cars, the clouds lifted and the sun appeared.  It was a pleasant morning spent with a number of super folks.  The hike leader this time was Trish Reid, an avid birder and dedicated naturalist.

Our next hike is much more strenuous:  Leaving Billy’s restaurant parking  lot at 8:00 a.m.   Destination is Placer Lake, Led by Rika Ruebsaat.  Call 295-4006 prior to the hike, if attending.

Our next evening meeting is at the Community Center on the hill by the  arena, 7:00 p.m.  Speakers are showing slides on their trip to Brazil.  All are welcome.
