imageThe Women’s Outdoor Network is planning a moonlight hike on Sunday to honor fallen member Laura Zekoll, who has been missing since a boating accident last weekend in the Bahamas. Zekoll (photo) was active in the lesbian outdoors group as well as the Decatur Women’s Sports League and the now-defunct AIDS Survival Project. Friends and family joined a vigil Tuesday at Saint Mark United Methodist Church in Midtown, where Zekoll was a member. WON announced the Stone Mountain hike on Wednesday. It begins at 4:30 p.m. at the base of the walk-up trail.

Join other WON members for a moonlight hike up Stone Mountain in honor of WON member Laura Zekoll. As with so many other Moonlight Ramble hikes led by Laura, the group will meet at the base of the walk up trail around the low walls near the restrooms (if you’re not familiar with the park, you will receive a map upon entry). Sunset/moonrise is at 5:30pm and the group will relax at the top of the mountain, and share snacks and thoughts.
