Report by Ruth Schaeffer – Nineteen hikers started up to Mud Lake on a beautiful sunny morning. The temperature was cool, but we soon were shedding outer jackets. The sky was a beautiful blue. We heard a woodpecker calling, but couldn’t see the bird. It is always amazing to stand on the bog and today the lake just sparkled in the sunshine. We even found the pitcher plants coming up. Some of us ate lunch before we headed down and others had lunch when we returned to our cars. Another group of hikers went around Pine Lake. It was a great spring day to be outside.
