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

Karl was too busy trying to get to the Summit to take photos in the first half of the hike, so all the photos are from the second half of the hike.


Carissa ahead of the pack and motoring like crazy


Dave's cursing the hike leader as he walks along


Paddy dressed sharp as always


The gang has North Peak in their sights


The last few steps to the top of North Peak -- aaaaahhhhh!


Jackie enjoys a tasty manwich at Olympia ...
Apparently what happens at Diablo doesn't stay at Diablo.


Looking at the quarry from Olympia -- so near and yet so far
