“Bumps on a Log”

On Saturday, April 26, members and guests of the Hiking Fellowship summited Blue Mound in perfect climbing conditions.   This was the loftiest altitude ever achieved during a Hiking Fellowship event!  The participants were properly acclimated and conditioned for the ascent.   We were accompanied by Dan Dieck’s beautiful German Shorthair (pictured below), the latter failing to point even a single pheasant. The hike was followed by a high-energy meal at Sjolind’s Chocolate House in Mt. Horeb.

Dan will be coordinating a summer hike on the Ice Age Trail and Karl Gutknecht  a late summer/early fall event at the Aldo Leopold Headquarters.   Virginia Bartelt will coordinate a Thursday evening hike during the summer.  All of these dates are to be determined by the respective coordinators.   Stay tuned for more information.
