April 30th Walker's Club LaSalle, Tonti Canyon


Best photo of the hike
Sorry this post is a little late.  We had a beautiful day a few days after a heavy rain, which meant the waterfalls we saw were flowing great.  Today we had 43 walker's and 3 dog.  That is a record. We met in the Lodge's lobby and carpooled to the Parkman's Plain parking lot off of Rt. 71. and walked into Owl, LaSalle, Tonti and to the bottom of the steps by Lonetree.

Trash picked up during the hike.  Yes that is a duck decoy!


Ellie also found this frisbee on the river trail.  She was wearing it as a necklace throughout the hike.
I will leave you with this: The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.
