A letter from Mansfield, Ohio with a "sort-of" hike...

Dear Belinda,

Well, you'll be pleased to know I took another hike last week (sort of!)

On Thursday, September 28, 2017 we had another wonderful showing of TRAIL MAGIC for the Chautauqua by Elixir Presents and the Mount Vernon library in Mount Vernon, Ohio. We were hosted at the Grand Hotel (and it truly was!) and had a wonderful crowd of 105 people! One of our audience members met Grandma Gatewood when he was in high school and shared some of his memories with us.

I know - that doesn't sound like much of a hike to you, but on Friday we met one of our audience members, Roberta, in Mansfield. She was donating a wonderful poster of the Appalachian Trail to us and so we spent the afternoon visiting with her. Part of that visit included a trip to Kingwood Center where they were having a Ribbit Exhibit. These lush garden grounds were now "peopled" by a number of whimsical frog statues! So basically we "hiked" all over the garden looking for the frogs that were scattered around. Though it wasn't a hike in the regular sense - we WERE outside enjoying nature and walking around - by my standards it counts! Besides, Roberta was setting off this week for a REAL hike on the AT, so that should count for something.

I'm sending you some pictures from Mt. Vernon and Mansfield. OH, and in case you were hoping to catch some of these frogs, the exhibit closed on Sunday.

Happy Trails!

Bette Lou
