our partners on the Sisters Ranger District, to Chris Scranton and his
trail brushing crew of one, to our frequent flyers, to 60
visitors/participants and to Jim and Sue Anderson for their moral support
and inspiration.

Seeing all those birds of prey,
Certainly made a lot of peoples' day,
A good time was had by all,
Hope to see everyone next fall!

uplifted and in the process so too are we."
