Write-up by Peter -- Pictures by George, Helen, Janice, Ramesh, Silviu, and Steve

Full writeup to come later ... in the meantime, here's the summary of the loop we took.

We started out from the hostel just after 4:00 AM, and here are the times we came in, as logged by Sabine. I think her times are slightly skewed at the bottom part of the table as the wine started to kick in -- I came in a full hour earlier than recorded! :)

Walking along the top of the ridge in the early morning fog

The dark tunnel leading up to Mt. Wittenberg summit

Edita's all smiles after coming down from Wittenberg

Is there a hiker in there somewhere?

Chester's got the right idea -- take it easy and let the fools hike in the woods

Halfway point -- Glen Camp (too smelly to stop for lunch here)

We owned Point Reyes!

Quick stop to eat some delicious blackberries along the way

It was just another day at the beach ...

Looking back along the Coastal Trail


Everyone made it look so easy. What does a hike organizer have to do to get some bitching and moaning around here? Get ready for the 50-miler at Coe ...

Honorable mentions:

Special thanks to George for making all the hostel arrangements and prescouting the trail, with help from Rudi.
