Write Up:

The brie may have turned into a hockey puck but we had a great campfire for Saturday night. In fact, everything about the weekend was great -- the weather, the company, and the hike! Ten campers headed out to Elizabeth Furnance to enjoy fall colors. While a little chilly at night, the weather was ideal for hiking. The top of Signal Knob was quite festive when we arrived: a troop of Boy Scouts listening to a lecture on the Civil War; a group of mountain bikers; three backpackers; and two friendly boxers named Pepper and Mango.

A group effort contributed to one of the best campfires I've seen -- thanks to everyone for pitching in! All in all, a great weekend for outdoor fun.
