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

A good buttkicker with over 5000 feet elevation on the day.

Heading out to Las Trampas Peak on a bright fall morning

The front-runners are almost there already!

Jeff left us Halloween candy at the peak. Mmmmm!

After an "accidental" short-cut by the hike leader, it was up the road to Rocky Ridge

"I think Rock 2 is over there"

"No, trust me, it's right here!"
(It's actually at the former antenna base behind us)

Heading down the backside of Rocky Ridge

A little fence limbo to get to Ramage Peak

Yipeng was already on the way down and loving it!

Smiles all around -- Rufina was happy to be close the top

After a good lunch break, the rest of the group begins the long trek back

Helpful sign! We need more of these ...

Heading up from Devil's Hole ...

... a long hike up on tired legs

Finally, almost at the top of the ridge

It's all downhill from here!

A welcome sight!

Honorable mention to Eric L and Yvon for doing some other hike in the vicinity. We didn't see them at the beginning or anywhere on the trail, but they were there for the all-important post-hike party.

Check out more great pihotos in Moe's album.
