And they're off! Heading up Flag Hill on a beautiful day in late February.

Front-runners leading the charge

Almost there!

Yipeng enjoying the overview

Chinyet and Manfred too

Others were just waiting for the shots

Happy 400th Ross!!

Looking back at Flag Hill from across the valley ...

As we slogged our way up to ...

The exciting Cerro Este overlook!!!

Then it was along the OWT, up and down the ridges ...

To mighty Goat Rock!

Approaching the top of The Rock close to High Noon

Enjoying the view from the top on a brutal California winter day

People were in no hurry to leave

Even the slow ones eventually made it

The worst part of going back is the hill leading up from Goat Rock

Cows watching us go back and forth -- what are these crazy bastards doing?

Rounding third and getting closer to home

When you see the reservoir, you're pretty much done. Party time!
