Due to the possible rainy and windy weather, we decided to just hike up to Lonesome Lake (3 mile roundtrip) and enjoy a relaxing lunch at the Lonesome Lake AMC Hut.  The rain mostly held off until the evening but the trail was wet and there was drizzle and mist.  After the hike, we enjoyed a yummy Halloween potluck dinner consisting of ribs, fajitas, cheese fondue, pizza, lasagna, salad and many appetizers at BobCat's house at "Bear Pond" NH.
