Crossing icy cold streams first thing in the morning wakes you up real fast!

Stopping at the Windmill to dry off our feet ...

... and toast Christina's 100th hike. Cheers!

Sarah joins in with the "air shot"

And then they were off, heading up the Lyman Willson Trail

Another stinky hiker on the trail

The star of the day was Pacheco Falls -- best I've ever seen it (them?)

Obligatory selfie at the bottom

Dark clouds moving in over Coit Lake

Kelly Lake -- last stop of the day
(I tried to pick up the pace after this, but still got caught in a hailstorm on the last mile -- thanks Big Henry!)

Honorable mention to newbie Ling who arrived late, picked up a map, and did a good portion of the hike. There were also Sandy F and Megan P sightings on this day.
