What a great way to spend the day, a 4 hr hike on the Manistee River Trail from Red Bridge to Woodpecker Creek (Hodenpyl) with Kathy Cook-Dowd, GTHC members Peggy & John Rademacher, then Kathy Pilon, Kris Sutten, Jerica Mae & Marlene joined us for the 3 hr paddle back to Red Bridge. Afterwards, we enjoyed a well-earned dinner at Maddy's in Interlochen on our way home. Another full day with friends! Sara Cockrell
