Sleeping Beauty ~ Oct 10, 2013

Journal entry by Lenore Reber



Sleeping Beauty called and 28 Canes answered, and they were happy they did! Jack began our hike with a brief history of Dacy Clearing, and then we were off. The cool and cloudy day became warm and partly sunny as we climbed the mountain, admiring the colors and talking with friends. Gasps of amazement at the blue sky, sparkling lake and hazy mountains accompanied our arrival at the top. We spread out on the bald summit to enjoy our lunch, each of us finding just the perfect perch and view. Many would have stayed the whole afternoon, but Lenoreís teacher voice soon disturbed the friendly murmur and we started back, down the wrong trail! Don came to the rescue, and we were off, hiking along the ridge and then down the other side of the mountain. We stopped briefly at tranquil Bumpís Pond to admire the old ruined chimney. Picking our way down the rocky old road, we met many hikers loaded with equipment for an overnight stay. We arrived back, thankful for such a lovely day and looking forward to our next adventure.
