Seventeen TrailBlazers hiked the Seven Hollows Trail on Petit Jean Mountain. 

This hike proved to be very fine, indeed.  The fall colors were lovely and there was so much water flowing we had a record number of creek crossings. There was one special attraction after another and the new hikers were suitably amazed as well as the regulars. The Grotto was flowing nicely and was a perfect spot for our lunch break.  Most everyone made it to the top of the Natural Bridge area to explore the Turtle Rocks.  Even the last mile and a half hike up hill was made more pleasant due to the sound of running water in the stream. It was a perfect fall day spent in a beautiful park doing what we love to do.
