2015-hike-224x300Ecotope staff enjoyed their yearly bonding hike to Lake 22 on October 9th. We believe  that REI  is modelling their Black Friday “Opt Outside” campaign on our annual hike, fondly known in the office as Wet Friday. We have been blessed with wet & muddy trails as well as active downpours on our last two hikes; just par for the course for this intrepid group of hoofers.  Thankfully there is warming Mexican food in Granite Falls.
