The 2011 Annual Conference in Dayton, Ohio, is over... one more for the books. It was an interesting experience going to a city instead of a small trail town. Dayton is a great place for trails of all kind, and our location, Wright State University, was a good venue.

The weekend was filled with great outdoor activities. Pictured above is a limestone wall from Clifton Gorge seen on one of the many hikes offered. Others chose historic and cultural opportunities, such as visiting the Air Force Museum or taking a ride on a recreated canal boat.

Great meals were provided to satisfy us in the evenings. Saturday's speaker was Bart Smith (Walking Down a Dream), who has hiked and photographed all eleven National Scenic Trails. In addition, the auction raised over $6000 toward the Land Trust fund.

The torch was passed to the Chief Noonday Chapter, who will host next year's conference near Battle Creek, Michigan.
