Lost Creek Lake North Shore 3-29-17

Photos by Bob and Dan

This was a delightful excursion along the North Shore of Lost Creek Lake, made even more enjoyable by the return of "English" Bob to our hardy group. As in the past, he eventually raced far ahead of our leader who was going at his max pace to maintain his leadership position. That didn't work, so Bob lead us to our scenic bench destination for lunch with Francie at his heels. There, John disappeared to his secret dry spot without inviting us so he didn't get his chocolate reward.

The light rain of the early part of our walk enhanced the forest and flower beauties, and rendered the Blue Grotto in its advertised color. As the day progressed, so did the precip until our walk became more of a slog in the mud. For this, we finally missed Keeley as we needed a demo of his fancy footwork to get around the deeper potholes. Nevertheless, this is a hardy group, and, even though we reached the cars longing for hot baths and showers, our jovial conversations were in no way dampened by the elements.

A round of the tallest beers at Buffalo Wild Wings kept us in good spirits and got us back to RiteAid
