Peter owes a writeup! -- Pictures by Karl and John

A big crowd showed up to work off the Thanksgiving calories

The gang at Not Eagle Peak

But we eventually found the real Eagle Peak

Proof that we were at the summit

Paddy checks out the view

The North Peak antennae loom up ahead

Coming down that thing was a piece of cake for Sophie

As if the climb wasn't hard enough, I had to fight through Paddy's poison gas

The clouds started moving in by early afternoon -- let's wrap this up!

Nice view of Eagle Peak from Olympia

The King of Mount Olympia looks down at the clouds

There were a couple of angels on Olympia too

Nice fall afternoon at Diablo -- perfect way to spend the day

Hike's over -- party time!

Honorable mention to Sabine for doing the first portion up to Eagle Peak on her gimpy ankle before having to turn back.
