The Tuesday hike report by Jake Gerlach: Eleven experienced hikers showed up for our hike on a warm evening. I had been thinking of several trails to hike but considering the heat and reluctance of some (me) to travel very far, we just went around Lake La Grange. At the top of the hill, I noticed that the dogwood was in bloom. When we got to the steps after the first switchback there was a turtle in the trail. We all got a good look and made sure that we did not step on it.
