Write Up:
Well, the with lots of luck, the weather did hold out for us and we completed our first MOC event! The weather forecast for the couple of days proceeding the hike, was a bit worrisome...but nothing a good old crossing of the fingers can't fix.

The group was really enjoyable and fun, as we chit chatted amongst the pine forests and near marshy lakes. The hike lasted about 2 hours over 4.7 miles worth of trail. Some of us spotted deer, and we saw a few interesting natural wonders while trekking through the woods. It was a well-spent, peaceful morning in the Refuge.
