Report by Barbara Roth

Three hikers met on the Silver Peak trail head at 8 am and decided to do a easy hike on Mt. Graham, scaling the hill to the look out tower

 from Columbine camp. The weather was superb and the drive absolutely beautiful, with fall colors tempting to come back for more later.

This overall pleasant day ended with an excellent dinner at the Mañana Mexican restaurant and a late drive home.

For next week, 1 October, please meet at the Silver Peak Trailhead at 8:00 a.m. We will meet with John Sumner’s trail work group.  Right now we are planning to drive to Long Park and hike to Anita Park to work on the Anita Spring trail spur. Plans may change but our meeting place and time won’t. The walk from Long Park to Anita Park is under three miles.
