Angelika brought to my attention that Pallasou Ridge OSP, right across the street from our good friend Hunting Hollow, was having an open house event so off we went!
I'd originally thought this would be an easy stroll and had planned to tack on Willson Peak afterwards to make it a "legit hike", but it turned out to be a very respectable hike, with about 3600 feet elevation gain over 13 miles, so I called an audible when we got back to Hunting Hollow and we started the after-party early -- a great way to spend a nice summer afternoon!
Big thanks to Angelika for finding about the event, and major kudos to Dara and Don for climbing Willson Peak as an added bonus!
p.s. This was Russ' 666th hike -- devilishly good!
