Record Turnout for Moonlight Hike

Luminary lit trail headSo many joined in our moonlight hike Saturday night, February 7th, that we needed to park cars on Indian Hill Road almost over to the Mary Conklin Sanctuary!  We thank everyone for assisting with our efforts at orderly parking on the western side of the road only.  The snow was soft and deep even in the well trodden trails.  Those that wore snowshoes were the envy.  Giggles, laughter and chatting were heard throughout the forest.  Chili and other good refreshments refueled the participants for the trek back down Breezy Hill.  More photos can be viewed in our photo gallery.
