there were 17 hikers + 5 no-shows. HUGE group! everybody
was on time, (unless the 5 no-shows were running a little late.
ha!) we were packed up, shuttled & river walking by 9:30.
nobody whined, nobody complained, everybody had a great
day. except maybe a.j. his hand was slammed in doobie's
door (the latch part) and it cut the nail in two & bled all day.
i think it's probably sore this morning.
but the hike was superb! it was long (13.5) and i was afraid
that we would lose daylight by the end. by 4pm people were
asking if they could just power ahead & not stop anymore
because it was getting late. that worked for me! there were
some clay-slippery steep places before lunch (cable hand
holds some places) and many many ups & downs. devil's
mountain was the last real effort, though.
s.b., we walked right past that picnic table for giants and i
recalled what you said you'd done there. is there a way to
forget such as that once it's in your mind's eye?
