LOJ WEEKEND – 03/06/20 – 03/08/20

I attended the annual Adk-Nfc Loj weekend outing March 6-8th hosted by Mary and Richard Schraven. We all stayed in the upper 12 person loft and 3 others stayed in downstairs rooms. Some attendees went cross-country skiing at the Mt Van Hoevenberg Olympic Center while others snowshoed various snow covered trails and mountains.

Sue, Pam, and I went up a couple days earlier and did some winter hiking up Ampersand, Owls Head, and Rocky Peak. We also did a little cross-country skiing through the forest towards Marcy Dam. The weather and conditions were ideal!

Friday night after a yummy hearty dinner we gather for an interesting presentation on the geology of the Adirondacks lead by a staff naturalist. Saturday morning we started the day with a full hot breakfast and headed out on our winter fun filled adventures!

Our group went on a 10 mile hike to Avalanche Lake which was exceptionally stunning with sunshine and the bluest skies imaginable! We enjoyed another delicious dinner together on Saturday and then sat outside around a warm campfire chatting, laughing and gazing at the florescent moon and stars. Another wonderful experience enjoying Adirondacks with fellow club members!
