The Cedaredge Senior Hikers hike on Wednesdays; but, the group also has several members who go up to Grand Mesa for cross country skiing and snowshoeing on Mondays and Fridays.

The recent blizzard gave members of the Senior Hikers group a chance to take on the role of true "storm troopers" as instead of relaxing with a book in front of the fireplace they braved wintery blasts and took to snowshoes for fun.

Even a snowed-in Highway 65 didn't stop the group of five cross country skiers and three snowshoers from making it up to the Ward Creek Reservoir trails for a wonderful outing in the blizzard. No crowds that day on the trails -- only lots of fresh powder.

Anyone interested in joining the Senior Hikers on their outing adventures into fun activity in Western Colorado and Eastern Utah's great scenery can call Jude Kieca at 856-7331.
