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!
