Peter owes a writeup! -- Pictures by Tony

Honorable mention to Niniane and Mei for doing part of the hike. One out of three newbies made it all the way -- better than I had expected.

The legendary Dipsea Trail awaited us

Steps ... lots of steps!

Finally out on the open trail

Working our way through the tropical rainforest ...

There's an ocean down there somewhere ...

Overcast morning at Stinson Beach

Brendan knows you gotta touch the water ...

... and then you get to have beer

It started clearing up as we were heading out

This is where I started having flashbacks to Hike 21

Check out the rest of Tony's pix.
