Write Up:

It was a celebration fitting of Russ's 500th! We took the obligatory photos and headed out at a good clip to the warm-up hill. Susan got to the top first, but there was some pulling and blocking taking place among George, David V., and Russ close to the top. Just to have a "clean" race to the top, we did the hill again toward the end of our hike. Marina surprised us all by taking off at a run and keeping her lead all the way to the top.

After our hike, we had a tailgate celebration with donations from Kian (veggies), home-made carrot cake muffins (Jeff G.), Strawberries and mini-muffins (Richard), gourmet crackers (Lee), chocolates (David V.) and individual packages of trail mix (Russ). There was so much to eat, none of us needed to go out to lunch as we often do after our Thursday morning hikes!

Lee felt that the occasion warranted a RELIVE video, so he put forth the effort to make one. You can see it at:
