Steve owes a writeup! -- Pictures by Iris, Chinyet, and George

INCH's 210th hike was going to be on a day with 100% chance of rain. So we hiked to a winery for a tasting and then hiked back for beer. Lots of rain and mud in between. Had expected the number of attendees to decline as everyone realized it would rain, but even on the last day, more people signed up than dropped.
