Write-up by Peter
Many people were out of town for the long weekend, so the turnout for the hike was small by recent standards -- only 9 people -- just the way I like it! We welcomed back INCH's original Linda after a 1-year absence.
1, 2, 3, ... INCH!
If you like heat, flies, and cow patties this was the hike for you. All were in plentiful supply, leading to many lame jokes, mostly by me, about this being the shittiest hike ever.
The good news is that the view from the top was great, and if you could forget about being eaten alive by the flies for a second, it was well worth it.
