    Very pleasant walk, tonight, in an especially lustrous Butler Sanctuary... Not many of us trusted the weather -alas- but tho ones who did were definitely rewarded by the greenest greens and a very soft carpet... As always, thank you, Peter for leading us!

    Hike is still on! Think positive thought regarding this evening's weather. Also, remember to bring something delicious for the post-hike picnic.
