Hike with Dennis

Once again we get to tag along with Dennis as he leads a hike.



Wayne led us up the WET Tewksberry trail for 2  1/2 miles to the Chute where we had our lunch.  So many flowers and fungi  like never seen before at this time of year and all because of the bountiful  rainfall we have received!!

What a pleasure to enjoy the great outdoors  with a great bunch of folks to enjoy it with.  We welcomed a couple of new  folks, Connie and Tony from Kansas, they did very well for the first time out  with us, hope to see them again soon.....

Wayne is leading the group tomorrow to the top  of San Luis peak, the first 14'er of the year for the group.  We need to  leave South Fork at 5 AM to make the trek and hopefully avoid the rain and  lightning..............

We WILL hike to the top of Fox mtn on  Thursday, if we happen to trip over some mushrooms we will collect  at the VCPL at 9 AM, bring your lunch, water, raingear and a  friend....
