We are so proud of own Bonnie Northrup. She had a personal goal of hiking all six trails to the lodge in one day, and she did it. Her official hiking time was 19:35. She and her loving husband, John Northrup, started at 3:30 in the morning hiking up Brushy Mountain trail and finished hiking down Alum Cave trail. This was John's third time hiking all of the trails in one day. He was "just along for the support". It was a good day for a long hike. It ended up being partly cloudy with a few showers here and there. The high was 62º with a low of 48º. We are currently under heavy cloud coverage.
