Six Mile Creek, south side rim trail starting at Crescent Place
There’s a little story with this photo — the hikers abruptly decided to start walking a few minutes before we were scheduled to depart — you can see me in my bike helmet in the right background shouting and cursing at them to wait until 9:30 — they just kept going
Won’t happen again ….

Hammond Hill SF, ski trails in the north and eastern areas
Another rainy Saturday morning ….
The woods looked great in the gloomy, misty atmospherics — I had a wonderful time
Two hikers failed to make it back to the cars with the rest of us — luckily, one had a working phone, not always the case here — they’d fallen behind and gotten lost — no map — the trails in this part of the forest are completely confusing and it took us a while to figure out by phone where they were, referring to a good map that Tiger had the foresight to bring — they made it out 45 minutes after everyone else …. a little distressed by the experience

Get-together at Hopshire to look at Jack V’s photo show
A lot of fun — pizza and sandwiches in addition to the usual salty snacks
