Mar 17 - Standing Stone State Park. 3 miles Easy.  You will have to decide for yourself it’s worth a 2 hour drive each way for a 3 mile hike.  If so, we will hike a section of the Lake Trail, check out the Visitor’s Center and explore the damm (dam) area.  Back in the 50’s I led all day hikes in the park for YMCA Camp Widjiwagon before it moved to Nashville.  After the hike we will have a late lunch at Ollie’s Place in Celina on the way home.  Meet for carpooling (wearing your green of course) at 9 am ct at First Presbyterian Church in Hendersonville.  For further info contact Irish Al.
