A beautiful day at Henry Coe! For once, almost everyone took all the right trails, including the infamous turnoff from the Cross Canyon Trail to the Kelly Cabin Trail. Big Henry took it on easy on me -- my legs felt good for a change and I was able to keep up with the likes of Sophie, Yvon, and the two Sarahs, finishing in just over 7 hours. But Big Henry did take out his punishment on someone -- after the hike, Robert's only words to me before he drove off were, "I feel like crap!"
