Moreau search for Don's Descent ~ Nov 20, 2012

Journal entry by Lenore Reber



Five feisty friends found a fine fall day for following trails. We took the Red Oak Ridge trail from the office parking lot to the power line 'trail', back to ROR, and then steeply up the blue trail. This section was particularly delightful for the Woods. Peter saw a deer and may come back hunting, and this was Donna's first time up the Moreau Overlook trail to see the great view of the lake and distant, hazy Vermont mountains. The other Peter kept us entertained or informed on a wide variety of subjects. We enjoyed the view while eating muffins and lunch and then briefly headed south on the red trail, trying to locate Don's turnoff that leads more easily down the mountain than the blue trail. We may have started correctly, but soon were bushwhacking through open woods, slipping on oak leaves, picking our way over rock slides, enjoying almost every step of the way, but wishing Don was with us. By consulting Ray's GPS, location of sun and lake, and our intuition, we came upon gathering streams, the white trail loop off the ROR, and then to the warming cabin and new solar powered out house. We finished our delightful trip by walking along the mirror still lake and planning another Moreau exploration.
