Write Up:

Oh, how lucky we were this morning to have a dry hike! The forecast recently called for that violent cold front to pass through during our hiking time, but luckily things slowed down overnight and the rain held off until the afternoon.

We were delighted to welcome Petra to the AOC. She did just great keeping up with the group and didn't whine a bit going up the dreaded warm-up hill! The first ones up the hill today were Andrea and Dolores in a tie! (David W. claimed fatigue this morning, but the wry little smile suggested that he purposely held back to let others get to the top before him.)

We did a very quirky route today, which offered a nice change to the regulars. When Petra returns, she'll learn that there are many trails in Island Ford that she has yet to discover.

Thanks to Lee for his photos, which have been added to the album.  And you can check out Gerrilyn's RELIVE video of the hike at
