Thirteen intrepid hikers braved dropping temperatures and very strong winds to hike the Lee Creek Trail north of Van Buren. 

The trail features a couple of old homesteads and cemeteries as well as an overlook view of Lee Creek Reservoir.  No one wanted to linger at the overlook due to the fierce onslaught of wind.  The trail led through woods and along a creek and then to a short climb to the Crack in the Rock.  The loop trail led back to the Bodine Cemetery area and back to the parking area.  Although it was a short hike, all were invigorated by the challenging conditions.
