Peter owes a writeup! -- Pictures by Alan, Karl, Kristy, Mihail, and Sarbi

The S2S Trail was closed so we had to take a detour at the beginning of the hike -- this was the only time all day that I was in the lead

First stop -- Mt. McAbee Overlook, with nice views of the Pacific

Front-runners arrive at Berry Creek Falls

Manfred having a good time!

David knows there's a party to get to

23 years in the books!

It's always a good time at the post-hike party, especially on the anniversary hike

The beer had a Game of Thrones theme this year

But the highlight was Kristy's cookies!

Happy 23rd anniversary INCH!
(unfortunately some of the folks had taken off before we remembered to take the photo)
