Trip Report/Photos

Many thanks to Fred (in Vermont) who led us through the quarry' snowy paths in Barre.

We walked about 3 to 3 1/2 miles depending on which app was used.

After our walk, we enjoyed a wonderful potluck with plenty of delicious pies.

We discussed various conversation topics including whether the sum a triangle's angles is truly 180. Please reach out if you want an explanation or what your thoughts are on the matter.

Merry Christmas to all and thank you to everyone who signed up.
