It was raining on the morning planned for this early October hike,
but a bunch of us bundled up in our rain gear anyway,
and hiked the North End Trails
— and we were really glad we did!
The beautiful colors were enhanced by the mists,
and our boots and hats and coats kept us warm,
and added to the colors of the forest.
The annual potluck afterwards at Toria Erhart’s home
was a lot of fun, too, and the food was great!
