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!

George's 530th leaf
Giulia's 220th leaf
