Greetings Barbie, Ray and I have been out of town since our tour last Saturday. We both want you to know what a fantastic time we had on the 14th on the 10:30a.m. tour. We were amazed we were still there at 4:30!!!!! Enjoyed every minute. Excellent tour. Please convey to Dennis and Chris that we both appreciate their informative and interesting tour. Enjoyed having the group picture, too. It was a super enjoyable day for us! Thank you for taking care of Ray's hat, too. We certainly will encourage others to consider the next tour. Has the Nov. 18th tour been cancelled? Thanks again and to all the volunteers "Keep up the wonderful restoration project and it is deeply appreciated."

Ray & Pat Hoctor Webster, Texas

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. - - John Muir
