The big 750th hike was supposed to be at Mt. Sizer, as commemorated by the artist's rendition beautifully captured on our bright new yellow T-shirts. It was not meant to be. There was a controlled burn around the Middle Ridge, so Sizer was off-limits on this day.
We settled for an out-and-back trip to Willow Ridge instead, with an optional trip to Hoover Lake for the front-runners.
Big Henry once again got the last laugh, but a good time was still had by all, especially at the post-hike party. Honorable mention to Sabine and Sandra for showing up to the party with the anniversary cake!
Also check out Tony and Janice's great pix of the hike.
