The Tuesday hike report by Jake Gerlach: There were two New Year’s hikes on this Tuesday. One was a hike at 1 p.m. at Natureland Park. I did not make that hike as we had company at home. I did manage to get to the regular 4 p.m. hike. There were three of us ready to go around Lake La Grange, including first-time hiker, Chris. Chris is still employed but he had read about our hikes in the paper and since he had the day off, decided to join us. Chris is a good hiker.
