The group sets out in the early morning at Coe

Busted! Ranger John knew we were coming and came by early to check on us (but there was no Booze Lake today).

Sophie and Mihail do the honors

Professional operation!

Congratulations to the Foresters!

It was a picture perfect day at Henry Coe

The creek was dry as a bone. Let the climb begin!

The front-runners were long gone by the time I got to The Bench so I had it all to myself
(I didn't wipe the crap off my forehead before the selfie)

"How do you like me now?" Big Henry put the hurt on Karl today.

Searching for the elusive peak of Mt Sizer

Good look at the namesake "hat"

Mihail made it to the top (while carrying the tequila bottle, or maybe because of it)

When you get back to the blue ropes the torture is finally over
