Peter owes a writeup! -- Pictures by Dong and Xun

INCHers dressed in red for the pre-Christmas hike

Fast start to warm up on a chilly morning

Then down into the Gulch

One group did a side trip to Murietta Falls

Splish splash! “Golden fish where are you?? I want my 3 wishes. I demand!!!"

Xun was having a lot of fun on this hike!

But then ominous clouds started to move in

The wind, rain, and sleet did not stop Tony and the ladies from smiling

I was also happy to get to Rose Peak

Then it was back down the long long long hill to Del Valle

I asked Santa to bring me a new pair of knees

From Santa:

Dear Peter,

Honorable mention to George who started the hike with us, but had to turn back a couple of miles into the hike as he was not feeling well.
