Weekend of Trail Magic with Grandma Gatewood
Our Trail Magic Festival took place August 22 - 25, 2013. Our thanks to all who participated. The hikes and poetry workshop and reading were great fun and the two performances of "Trail Magic" were presented to virtually sold-out houses! (Read some audience comments about "Trail Magic")
