    Join us for the fourth in our series of hikes celebrating the mighty Iroquoia Section.  This stop – the truly momentous Mount Nemo – like hiking on a cloud – tremendous views on a clear day.  Breath-taking elevation.  Slippery rocks when wet or icy which is virtually certain.  Please wear icers and hiking boots.  Poles highly recommended.  Please bring warm drink, water, snacks and lunch.  “Holiday” attire welcome but no reindeer please.  Covid protocols respected.  Please let me know if you sign up but later find out you can’t make it so that we can free up space for another hiker.
