Beautiful morning at Island Ford - nice and easy hike - big blunder by the trip leader - the posting stated first parking lot in one place and in another area of posting stated second parking lot.  We all sort of met in the middle and then continued our hike as a group.  Thanks to all my shuttle drivers (Michael, Alex, Smitha) for getting everybody back to their vehicles.  Thanks to Smitha and Susan for tracking down all the hikers from the 2nd lot and finding the rest of the group.  Special thanks to NORM - he was not on the hike but he contacted hikers that were with me and instructed them to "keep an eye on me".  I was fine, Norm.  I survived to hike another day.  Norm's specialty is spotting and photographing Great Blue Herons but today I got a great shot. 

Thanks to all for joining me this morning at Island Ford
