It was a full day of fun for Eph Nordic. 8:30am was the start of the Schnellsteigen preview - a Tour de Greylock Massif: three hours of running a series of ridges and valley up and around Mt. Greylock. Equipped with maps of the route, there were no lost wanderers, making this year's tour a great success.
After dinner everyone headed up to Bud and Barb's house for pumpkin carving, roasted pumpkin seeds, and pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Who could carve the best pumpkin? was the question, and there was some serious competition. I will post pictures of jack-o-lanters as Halloween nears, and you can be the judge!

At the finish, just as the rain starts to fall. Time for brunch!

Ties are tucked and sleeves rolled. Despite the smiles present, this is serious business.

Pumpkin Pie is the ultimate reward for some tough carving work. Thanks Barb!!
