A group of 10 chapter members back packed into John’s Brook lodge for a three night stay on a beautiful weekend in July. Everyone picked a hike they wanted to do and spent the day out hiking Haystack, Marcy or Big Slide and the Brothers. We had a great time having meals together and hanging out in the Lodge, and a few went for a dip in the chilly brook. We met lots of other people there at dinner and passing by. It’s always fun to swap hiking stories in a place like that! Several of us had been there before, but those who hadn’t agree that it was a great place to go, and all agreed we should run a similar outing next summer.
