This hike reminded me of Mission Peak, if MP had 3.5k ft of elevation gain, a redwood-filled valley, sufficient parking, fantastic views of the ocean, fewer people, and no cows.
I'd write more--like how George planted the seed of doing this hike, or about Jackie turning back, or even the story of a geocacher who found Jeff's favorite jacket a week after the hike and kindly returned it--but the pictures cover the high points.
