The Tuesday hike report by Jake Gerlach: During the afternoon on Tuesday there was a very heavy thundershower. When we got to the meeting place, the sky was blue and it felt like a wonderful summer day. Because of the wet conditions I chose to go around Lake LaGrange. All along the trail going down the hill the powder blue lobelia were in bloom. Halfway down the hill someone said that there was a turtle and sure enough, there was a turtle on the edge of the path that I had walked past.
