Hikers gather at Katama Point, ready to begin the trek. Alison L. Mead

They were 48 and one dog strong Saturday morning, gathered at Katama Point, the start of the Martha's Vineyard Land Bank's annual cross Island hike. The route would take them through 20 miles of land bank trails, ancient byways, paved roads and some private properties from Katama to Lambert's Cove Beach.

Alison, Great pictures. How could you do the hike without a lot of rain? I'm sure, though, it was more fun with just sun and a clear sky. Does your body ache a bit? While you were hiking I was driving back to the Vineyard from Fort Lee, NJ. Maybe I'll do the hike next spring. I remember one hike that was, as I recall, 22 miles. I was hurting for two days after that one. Of course, I was much younger. Hugs, Herb

Thanks for the wonderful pictures, Alison. You captured a gorgeous day and many happy hikers. I look forward to you, Herb and many others joining the hike again next year.
