Fifteen gathered near the Lithia band shell, a circle of friends, we welcomed Daniel Champion to the group and welcomed back Carol Mockridge from her recent injury. The predicted rain never showed it's face  and our prepared hikers were comfortable in their Winter gear.

We casually walked about 4.5 miles around Lithia Park noting points of interest as well as the history of the park. We walked up past the swimming reservoir to the wild part of the park over a couple of large dead fall. Then we headed back down and unanimously voted to take the high trails back. 

Tracy called ahead to reserve our tables at Louie's for lunch. We were joined by Alice and George there and were introduced to Hal, a former member of the hiking group.

A note to all: The Outdoor Store on Second St continues it's going out of business sale all week as it tries to liquidate it's inventory. The two decade store was a victim of the summer smoke.
