Vroman’s Nose – Tuesday, August 28, 2018

Report by Ruth Schaeffer - Seventeen hikers met at the bottom of Vroman's Nose to hike on Tues, August 28th. It was a beautiful hot, hazy, humid summer day. Armed with lunches, lots of water and gorp we enjoyed our lunch on the top. It is always fun to be on a hike with hikers that haven't been to the top. When they see the view of the valley for the first time it is exciting!!
