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


Ominous looking start at Henry Coe ...
We set a record for the number of "declines" for the hike.


Robert couldn't pick a better hike for his first Forest ...


... and Jeff is loving his second!


Nothing slows down the front-runners


Jeff was stylin' as he crossed the creek at Poverty Flat


Others, ... not so much


Enjoying the beauty of Henry Coe Park!


Heading down Mahoney Meadows Road with Willow Ridge waiting up ahead


The hike up Willow Ridge never disappoints


Seeing the mudhole makes it all worthwhile, doesn't it?


I always love a nicely maintained landing strip


Big Henry decided to throw in some rain to add to the suffering


Just keep following the muddy footprints ...


... all the way back to the blue ropes. Finally done!

Milestones:
Brad's 40th leaf
Jeff's 2nd forest
Robert's 1st forest
