Oct. 1st, Wildcat, Lonetree, Basswood Canyons

Today's Walker's Club left with 39 walker's and 1 dog (Cocoa).  We headed out on the Bluff trail toward Wildcat Canyon via Pontiac Canyon.  Very breezy day but comfortable.




Asters are everywhere


Brown marker means bluff trail with a gold circle meaning you are walking away from the Lodge and visitor center.

Geology Joe always takes photos of guests on his weekend hikes.  Today was his turn.


Some of the steps are a bit much



Great view of the Illinois River from Sandstone Point


Heres Burl.....

And still coming down.....


Lovely clouds.  View of the Illinois River from the River trail near Wildcat Canyon



All of us in Wildcat Canyon


View from Beehive Overlook.  Yes it is always overgrown without a view.


Thank you Tom from picking up trash.
It was great to go hiking today.  Can't wait to see when the colors change.

I will leave you with this: The same boiling water that softens potatoes, hardens eggs.  It's all about what your made of NOT your circumstances.
