Talk about getting it spectacularly wrong: a day that was forecast to be partly cloudy, high of around 54, turned into Glorious Summer, with sunny skies and a high of almost 70 degrees. The hardy souls who braved the mediocre weather and received the benefit of all the lovely weather included Larry Peed (in shorts the whole day!), Alan Kurzweil, Mike Bivens, Jane and Jim Hudnall, Regina Saizan, Richard Harrington, Joan Oppel, Darin King, Loretta Troen and leader Steve Palincsar.
The route was a version of Goose Bay Clockwise, with a slight modification (right on Rt 6 after Mill Swamp to Burch, left on Poorhouse to Pisgah, Mason Spring to Chicamuxen) to avoid the more usual right on Fire Tower. It's been three weeks, but I'm still not psychologically ready to face the scene of the crash. Maybe next time.
Larry had a flat on Poorhouse, a good sized piece of glass. Thanks to Joan for the assist, and a nod to Loretta, whose sharp eyes spotted the gleam from the glass fragment at a two yard distance.
