This site contains some photos of the Saturday Hike contributed by several hikers.

The first four photos were contributed by Juergen Haase. The first shows Sam draining grease from a pan into the campfire, in early 2002. It was taken at night with no flash, illuminated only by the fire. picture 1

The second photo, probably taken 8 March 1997, shows Sam near a cliff beside the Middle Fork River where he saw a deer fall many years earlier (perhaps around 1985). The overhanging cliff where the deer stood gave way under it. The deer broke a leg when it landed near the bottom. picture 2

Photo 2a shows hikers sliding a block of ice into the river on 25 Jan 1997. picture 2a

Photo 2b shows hikers keeping warm around a winter fire on 11 Jan 1997. The best part was that there were no mosquitos. picture 2b

Saturday Hikers in 1959 from the News-Gazette. Note that there should not be a comma after "Seward" in the caption. His name was "Seward C. Staley" and he was a Dean.

Lippold wore shorts to the hike on May 31, 2014, so he had to make leggings from duct tape to protect his legs from nettles.
