Judy, Freeda, Karen, & Chenoa.
The hiker is the one with the hat.

will be seeing a lot of these... hopefully!
Last minute preparations
The lodge at Amicalola Falls
Karen’s last “normal” meal
Guess she won’t need that
hairdryer anytime soon!
Hiker Registration -  That’s how
they know who’s lost in the woods.
A false fire alarm at the lodge added
a little excitement the night before
Karen left... as if she needed a
little more excitement!
Sunset at the lodge
Karen - headed for that horizon
The Trail Caretaker gives a group
of hikers some tips for success.
Karen is at the start, ready to go
A prayer and scripture reading
sends Karen into the wilderness...
...and she’s off!!
