Poison ivy

Case of poison ivy, paired with loss of pearl earrings

Recently my husband and I drove out to Echo Lake for a quiet paddle in our canoe. It was scenic and pleasant until I found myself with a wicked case of poison ivy in the following days. We parked at a pullout halfway along the lakeshore and paddled around the lake and then had enjoyed a little picnic snack. Please be aware that around many local lakes and mountain streams there does lurk this nasty danger and also if anyone picked up the oblong pearl drop earrings that I lost there please email me at  melgud@hotmail.com as they are not very valuable but are of great sentimental value to me. Thank you in advance.
