Write-up by Peter -- Pictures by George and Yipeng

It was chilly at the start, but things warmed up quickly as we headed up Steer Ridge. It turned out to be a beautiful day at Henry Coe, and made for a not-too-brutal hike. It was easy for the front-runners who came in around the 6-hour mark. Most of the pack came in between 7-8 hours, and the last couple of stragglers came in at 9.5 hours -- but there was still beer left for them. INCHers were in a jovial mood, as can be seen from the pix below.

Newest member of ZZ Top joined us on the hike -- sharp dressed man!

Other fuzzy friends came along too

Kelly Lake was pretty as a postcard on a beautiful fall afternoon
