On Saturday November 28, 24 friends hiked to Great Falls on the Bennett Street Trail in North Sandwich, and returned the same way, a 2 mile round trip. It was a day of variety and adventure, with a little rain, spurts of sun reflecting off the landscape, challenging stream crossings and a worthy destination. We stayed together and helped each other out when needed, which was done without thinking about it-- evidence of a cohesive and experienced group. Good job everybody.
