Nine members of the Central Oregon Nordic Club combined a wood-splitting party with a hike on Sunday, Sept. 16.
Group leader Gary Kelley, using his GPS, led hikers on a short cut off trail to get to the ACDC shelter. There, a number of rounds were ready for splitting. So club members split and stacked the wood, with the cool, drizzly day acting as a reminder that ski season is not far away any more.
The group then hiked out by following the ski-trail diamonds, ending the day back at Edison Sno-Park with the satisfaction of doing a good deed combined with a hike with friends.
