Peter owes a writeup! -- Pictures by Karl, Peter, and Giulia

Heading out after warming up with some 151 ...

The ladies were all smiles and lookin' good ...

Mighty Schleiper Rock was there to greet us ...

Lunch stop at the falls ...
(a few seconds after this shot was taken, the smiles turned to screams of horror
as I exacted revenge on the crowd for taunting me on the way down)

Running away after getting the full moon!

There was only a small trickle of water at Murietta Falls
(Can you see Rufina up there? Don't jump!)

Heading past Johnny's Pond on the way back

Looking at the twin peaks of Diablo from Schleiper Rock

The toughest part of getting back is having to come back up from The Gulch ...

... but it's worth it!

Honorable mention to the Great Eight who also visited Murietta's Secret (including both newbies -- good job!): Adam C, Amaury, Gavin, Giulia, Jeff, Nick H, Ralph, Shuli. Personally, I prefer to visit Victoria's Secret.
