Honorable mention to Mike for going up Flag Hill before the heat got the better of him. Wise man!

Say cheese! And happy birthday to David.

Those wacky INCHers!

Sabine had already been there for hours -- it's lonely at the top

Lunch at the top (as soon as George can sit his ass down!)

Heading back down to beer!

David doesn't look a day over 70

Some short-cutters (ahem!) got a chance to check out the JB Ranch

When you get to the bridge, it's all over

Why we hike

Most people did the "Sarah Trail", coming off the backside of Flag Hill to Welsh Road. Very nice (even though my knee took a beating)! Karl didn't want a repeat of last week's crapfest, so he wisely stuck to the official trail, with Stacy and Nik. It's all good!
