Sat, Oct 10: Prospective Member Walk Thinking about joining the Adirondack Mountain Club? This is the outing for you. Meet some members and discover that there is something for everyone (contrary to rumor, we have not all climbed Everest, in the dark, barefoot). We’ll walk on the Red Sandstone Trail for a mile on mostly level terrain to the old Parmeter quarry, then return. Our walk, even with all the chat about the club and the trail, should take about 90 minutes to two hours. Visit our web site, adklaurentian.org, and contact trip leader John Omohundro, firstname.lastname@example.org, 315-265-8365, for details.
