Fletcher Canyon - 8/28/10

The hike for today was Fletcher Canyon. Luci and Carl, the fearless coordinators of this hike offered this report of the morning.

Today's hike was Fletcher Canyon joined by 30 happy hikers, with a couple of new faces, who thoroughly enjoyed the cooler breezes in the forecast. Early on, up the trailhead, Guy pointed out a dead tree we hadn't noticed on previous trips. The gusty winds earned our respect as we cautiously went by this towering tree hoping today was not the day it would decide to drop any branches. Today's photographer could not resist taking the photo below. The scenery was beautiful as ever and the conditions were perfect for this outing.

Once inside the slot canyon, everyone enjoyed the patches of sunshine as the temperatures continued to drop making our way up to Obstacle Rock. We had a few adventuresome folks who challenged the Rabbit Hole and succeeded to the top. They appeared on top of Obstacle Rock as if they were the King of the Hill. The return trip was most pleasant accompanied by lots of chatter and laughter.
