A message for our members going on the Acadia Park Trip… Yvon & Germaine have reserved campsite is D 10. If you plan on going make your reservations accordingly.
First a message from Paul…
Greetings all, If some are up for it I am going to lead a hike this Saturday Dec. 28th to Adair’s Wilderness lodge near Poley Mountain. I plan to do what I call the Walton Lake Loop. I will do it counter-clockwise saving the nicest part for the second half of the hike. Lunch at the lake.
The conditions should be good with 2 degree temps., sun and a light breeze. Rated moderate, between 3 and 3.5 hours. A couple of water crossings that traditionally we have managed to cross without getting wet. Relaxation at the lodge after the hike. Meet time at 10:00 at the Irving on Champlain or at Adair’s at 11:15 ish. Grippers just in case although I suspect we will not need them.
