Leader: Ron Altemus
Members: Susan Altemus, Fran Jezisek, Jackie & Randy Schoch, Susan Henn, Azalia Butler, Steve Palincsar, Melissa Newberry, John Early, Belinda Acre, Robin Garnett (and encountered along the trail - Judy Mutty and Bev White)
Route: no route changes here - the original, all-time fav, IH Village Green to White Plains and return
Weather: wonderful! Temps ranging from cool upper 60s to pleasant 70s; plenty of blue skies and sunshine; the usual gentle zephyrs from the west.
Report: a great turnout with a few members we haven't seen for a while. Nice to have Azalia, Melissa, and John out riding with us. As mentioned above, the weather was great. Fawns, turtles, a hummingbird, plenty of butterflies, and several skittish squirrels going back and forth across the trail constituted our wildlife sightings. The abundant rain of the summer has kept everything green and there was a profusion of wildflowers in yellows, reds, purples, lavenders, and white (white jasmine?). Seven of us went on to the Lunch Box to replenish the calories expended having so much fun on such a great day.
