Peter owes a writeup! -- Pictures by Karl, Peggy, and Xun

Beautiful day, fun group, great hike! There was actually some tough hiking on this day, but you can't tell that from the photos :)

Heading up the Steer Ridge in the early morning
(gotta get this over with before it heats up!)

Here comes the sun!!

The ladies take time to strike a pose

Karl is smiling cause he's knows he's closer to the top ...

... and this is the reward!

Group photo at Willson Peak (Brad and Sarbi were long gone)

The group (mostly) stayed together all the way to Dowdy

Karl prefers this photo to the one on Hike 947

The ladies got back to Hunting Hollow quickly and started the party

The best (only) good part of an INCH hike is the post-hike party

Post hike stats: This was the 5th time doing this hike for Sarbi and myself. That's about 120 miles / 35,000 feet of Big Henry punishment! Brad and Karl have done it 4 times. Some people just don't learn.
