The weather was not as bad as on last year's hike, but there was still plenty of mud and rain. I went ankle deep in the muck within a quarter mile of the start, and it was all downhill after that. Karl and I took a wrong turn on the Sycamore Trail and after scrambling through brush and hanging on to dried scrub roots for dear life, decided to turn back. We found our way back, but it did involve crawling under a couple of barbed wire fences and hoping that we wouldn't end face up in a cow patty. Going back to the early days, Las Trampas never disappoints!
Pink Leaf of Weakness to Robert, for only doing the first of the two loops. It was actually the harder of the two!
