The Tuesday hike report by Jake Gerlach: After a two-week absence while I went south on a family vacation, I was glad to get back to hiking. This Tuesday the temperature was about 18 degrees and there was a strong breeze out of the west. I was glad to see both Marvin and George as they had been absent for a lot of the winter. A total of six hikers went around Lake La Grange.
