Post Trip Report:The hike around Indian Boundary Lake was enjoyed by all. The weather forecaster's were not kind to anyone wanting to hike this Sunday afternoon. Six hikers met in the Etowah Bi-LO parking lot with no rain and no storm clouds in site to car shuttle to Indian Boundary to hike around the lake. The hike around the lake was without rain and some good views of the lake and only a few bikers on the trail, and one of them was Steve Mantooth. After the hike we enjoyed our evening meal in the picnic area without rain. after the evening meal Jane and Clayton put a canoe on the lake so Jane could get some experience paddling and controlling a canoe. Near six PM storm clouds moved in and it started sprinkling rain. We made it to shore and got the canoe loaded before the storm started.Hikers were Clayton Pannell leader, Shirley Jones, Jane Bohannon, Aggie Scott, Steve Mantooth and Belinda Mantooth.
