Eklutna 2016!

Sunny skies and warm temperatures greeted the Divas as they rode out to the Serenity Cabin on Friday. Bike bobs and panniers were packed full of all sorts of supplies and goodies, and anticipation of a good time was clearly in the air. 

Golden, changing leaves created some spectacular scenery for the ride out.

Early riders who were hiking and exploring the forest near the cabin met and greeted the late riders as they arrived on Friday afternoon.

The Serenity Cabin was beautifully surrounded by fall foliage, lit brightly by the sun on Friday and Saturday. Sunday was another story with winds and rain.

Corrine cruised the last couple of miles to the cabin with a large swatch of vibrant, illuminated trees behind her.
 JoAnn seemed happy to be "almost there" as she rode the trail through the woods.

Susan displayed some of the odd and interesting plant life she found in the forest.

Michele was sad because the bumpy trail caused her pack to rub a hole into her perfect garlic bread. But, it didn't matter at all - it was still yummy and perfect once the dirt was cut out!

Michele helped JoAnn prepare Friday's dinner - pasta with pesto, chicken, sun-dried tomatoes and mushrooms - mostly pre-prepared by JoAnn. YUM!

Joan led the group in some afternoon yoga on the deck, which was much-appreciated.

Impromptu bridge yoga helped some Divas stretch their backs.

Rose's pretty and very natural garland constructed from leaves and a rope she found tied to a tree spruced up the place.

Nancy, Susan and Diana showed off their river-silt mud masks that were a first for the Divas at Eklutna. Perhaps a tradition has started!

JoAnn decided to join the Diva mud fest!
Is the water glacier-cold, Kristine??!!

Patti, Susan and Michele hiked toward Eklutna Glacier, along the creek and with gorgeous trees behind them.

Nancy and Kristine cooked blackened halibut tacos for Saturday's dinner - another yummy feast.

Diana had to admit the heart-shaped rock Michele found is a good one, after Michele dragged Diana back out to the woods to retrieve it!
The group faced a windy, rainy ride out Sunday with smiles and optimism after having a great weekend!

The last few Divas to arrive back at the trailhead did not want to let traditional die, so we went for ice cream at Rochelle's - their last day open for the season - our lucky day!
