Troopers, great job with the hike yesterday! Thanks for arriving on-time (can you believe you guys/gals all got up so early to get to the carpools by 6:30 am or 6:45 am??). I'm very proud of everyone for finishing the hike, and helping each other in navigation and other things as we split up into 4 groups towards the end of the hike. You guys/gals are getting better and better with the maps!

Welcome to the new-comers who hopefully weren't too shocked at the at-times nutty hiking paces. The hike was a little longer than I had planned - 18.5 miles. The total elevation gain was at least 3500', we went through at least 2 streteches of 1200' climbs, plus numerous ups and downs throughout the rest of the trails. About 75% of the trails were shady, and the weather was simply perfect.

We saw lots of birds, sea lions, deers, rabbits, and even a large bobcat!
