Steve owes a writeup! -- Pictures by Chinyet, Karl, Alan and Steve

This was supposed to be Russ's hike, but he bailed at the last minute. I'd been wanting to do this "new" hike in La Honda for a while. They purchased a huge property a very long time ago. I'd visited the northern part in the past (which only has a few short trails and requires a permit). Still don't understand why it takes so long to open up trails (not roads). . .but we'll take what we can get!

And away we go

Kathryn loves new trails

Pretty much everything looks like this in the summer

The crucial arrow at the "bottom" of the hike--half way done, but heating up

Not sure what purpose this flower-looking metal connector serves. . .

The park leaves a (caged) trimmer out there for hikers to clean up the area

Little reservoir on the way back

Invasive and dead Scotch Thistles along the way

Also some not-dead, yet-still-weeds along the way

The post post-party at Apple Jack's

Alan's 170th leaf
