Here's a report from the group​'​​​​​​s recent outing hiking on one of Atlanta's many Intown trails:

L'Chaim, our 55+ group, did a gentle hike through Emory's Lullwater Preserve on Sunday, August 26.  It was a beautiful day for walking, and most of the students had either not gotten to campus yet, or had not woken up.

Highlights of the walk, other than the spirited conversation ranging from travel tips to political observations, included turtles sunning themselves on a piece of driftwood, the long suspension bridge over Peachtree Creek, the many butterflies, and the serenity of both the lake and the creek as we passed.

Ten people participated in the walk.  Be sure to watch for the hike on next summer's schedule.  It's a good opportunity to get to know others in the age group.
