Luzerne was really jamming with loud music, people milling around gearing up for the great event. All proceeds benefiting the Dallas Kiwanis, Northbranch Landtrust, and the Back Mountain Trail. While volunteering at the cookie stand, I saw Judy Ripple who came to our area in the 70's from the West Coast and was chagrined to see there were no walking trails. So.... she did something about it - and thus the Back Mountain Trail was born. She was beaming with delight as was I because I was asked to do the painting for the back of the 'TAKE A HIKE' hoodie which shows a trail in the winter as the sun goes down. Very northeastern PA!!!!
