Diane’s Crossing to Hill Road, Danby SF
Saturday July 29
This hike was led by Jack V, who took the photos
You can see Jack’s photos from the hike and the cook-out afterwards here. I chose the shots to illustrate the hike report from this album. I had to crop the shots to use in this report — Jack just got a new camera and it produces such large files (24 MP) that I wasn’t able to upload them to the web site without cropping them.
Update on the Saturday afternoon cook-out
It broke up sometime after 10 pm. A large amount of baked clams were eaten toward the end. Our food coordinator Liz asked me to post this comment from her:
What a wonderful day we had at our annual summer hiker’s picnic! The weather was perfect, the venue was amazing, the food preparation went on without a hitch. A big thank you to all who helped, including the set up crew, the cooks, the clean up crew, everyone who provided a dish-to-pass, Roger and Gunilla for hosting us, and of course Steven and Susan for being at the helm.
Because of everyone’s generosity, All the bills were paid, and we have $120 extra. Last year, about that amount went to pay for the annual fee to maintain the hiker’s website. Since Mary already collected monies for that during a previous event, this year I will present Steven and Susan with a gift certificate to a restaurant of their choosing. They are so generous in their time and efforts that this meant to be a little thank you, from all of us.
It is a pleasure to coordinate this event. I look forward to seeing everyone on the trails, in a kayak, or at another of our social events throughout the year.
Here are two final shots from the cook-out that I didn’t have room for in yesterday’s photo report:
