Post Trip Report: On a beautiful sunny Saturday, eight of us hiked at the Lula Lake Land Trust on Lookout Mountain. The two waterfalls were spectacular. We hiked up the bluff view trail to the overlook of Flintstone, GA, where visibility was great and we could see for several miles. Afterwards, we had planned to eat at Mount Vernon Restaurant on Broad Street, but it was not open for lunch some headed for Mom's Restaurant on Market Street. We ran into Edmond and Gail Gray at Momís Restaurant. They opted not to re-hike the Lula Lake Trail with us on April 6, because they had already hiked it in early March. However, they do deserve a mention since they made the hike in March. Hikers on April 6 were Carol and Carroll Guhne, Ella and Jim Brown, Kenneth and Jolynn Johnson, Buddy Arnold, and Ann Gray, hike leader.
