Write-up by Steve -- Pictures by Glen

Eugene managed to earn a Black Leaf of Shame for being the only person to completely miss Rancho CaƱada del Oro OSP (i.e. the purpose of the hike). Steve P was at the start of the hike, too, to do three or four miles of recuperative hiking. This hike also featured the 5000th hiker on a hike.
