    Thank you to all 8 Hikers, 2 Hike leaders + Annabelle the Dog, that came out. 11 Hikers finished the Yellow trail of 2.5 Miles in 52 Minutes, with an average rate of 20 minutes per mile + a 5 minute break. Along the way we climbed a few light hills, saw a baby rabbit and a host of birds. Overall a nice relaxing pace on this mid Summer evening, followed by a snack at the Four Dogs Tavern.
