Twenty-two (one score plus 2!) TrailBlazers and 2 canines under the command of Nebo Dude made the scenic drive to Mt.Nebo to hike the Rim Trail on an overcast and breezy morning. In addition to our oldies but goodies, some of our new faces came back for more today, so we managed not to scare them off last week. We’ll have to try harder for Halloween!  {gallery}2015-10-17-Mt-Nebo{/gallery}

Thirty-one TrailBlazers, both old and new, picked a beautiful morning to make the short drive to Lake Alma to hike and clean up under Linda’s lead. You might say we were “bag ladies” (and a few bag men!) in the best sense of the words since we were picking up junk left by lazy folks who can pack it in but can’t seem to summon the energy to haul it out! We divided into 2 groups either going clockwise or counterclockwise around the lake and eventually meeting halfway. Yours Truly was glad she went counterclockwise because the rocky part was on the far side and that area had already been cleaned up before her group got there! That was a stroke of genius on her part and therefore will be stored in long term memory!

By Becky’s best guesstimate a record breaking four score and twelve (aka 92 – love that Gettysburg Address language!) hikers showed up at Devil’s Den for our 14th season opener picnic. Great weather awaited us. We had enough people to form 4 hiking groups, one on Lee Creek trail, another scrambling in the crevices, and two groups on the Devil’s Den Trail starting at opposite ends and meeting in the middle. This led to a hiking stick showdown on the trail between Linda and Yours Truly; naturally YT won with her 2 stick to one advantage! All is fair in love and war! There used to be a whole bunch of rock cairns along Lee Creek, but most are gone so a few of us made some new ones.

Hikers all

On a fine spring day 38 TrailBlazers crawled out of the woodwork and headed up to Fayetteville to scale the heights of scenic Mt. Kessler. The reasons for the great turnout were probably threefold: a new hike for us, a short drive, and the scent of pizza wafting down to the River Valley – to be explained.

Thirteen TrailBlazers, only 2 of the male persuasion, under the lead of Captain Linda had a perfect day for hiking around Lincoln Lake.

Ten TrailBlazers, including Billigene, headed for Ponca under the command of Judith and Ed to hike the trail down to Big Bluff. The weather casters got it wrong and we had no rain at all on the trail. Yours Truly rode in a carful of men and at our favorite Clarksville pit stop had the unique experience of having to make an executive decision between 2 empty stalls in the rest room – unheard of for Lady TrailBlazers!
