PicnicBlazersTwo score plus 3, give or take, TrailBlazers and at least 3 canines headed up to Devil’s Den on a hot, steamy afternoon for our end of season hike and picnic. If truth be told, and Yours Truly always tells the truth more or less, a fair number of our members took a vicarious hike by sitting around chatting in the shade! They will not be “outed” here since text length limitations on the home page preclude listing the names of so many slackers!

Eighteen TrailBlazers and one canine managed to get to Lake Alma even though the road-powers-to-be decided to block off the westbound Highway 64 exit on northbound 540; many of us use this to exit to our meeting place! Getting creative, we found our way to the rendezvous and reached the trailhead in no time where a treat was in store for us.

Twenty-three TrailBlazers, under the command of Danny and his able assistant Becky, headed for the Pelsor area on a very brisk morning, but nowhere near as cold as at least three hikes that Yours Truly can dredge up from the deepest recesses of her brain!  It was a beautiful drive with blue skies and sunshine and touches of fall color here and there.  Wild Bill, a glutton for punishment, chose to ride his motorcycle but he was appropriately decked out for the weather!  We were once again pleased to welcome some newcomers and tried not to scare them off on their first visit!
