Notes about upcoming Ice Mountain field trip:
A field trip honouring Larry has been scheduled for June 9 at 10 a.m. to
Ice Mountain in WV. The distance from Winchester is farther than was said
in the earlier email about the trip. Sally Anderson, who lives in
Winchester, reported: "The distance is nearly 30 miles from downtown
Winchester or 25 miles from Rt. 50 and Rt. 37."
Here is Steve Bailes' page about visiting Ice Mountain:
Further details will be provided at a later date.
