    Apologies for my late withdrawal, but I have over-committed myself this weekend. I hope to join you on a hike the next weekend.

    This hike is Beverly's signature hike. You will enjoy her leadership as well as the beautiful terrain you will be hiking through. Potluck afterwards at 5:00. See Bev for details on location.
