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!
