    Since many of us were taking a pictures, we will not be able to download all photos we took to the meetup site.
    As additional place to post photos you can use this website: http://imgur.com/.
    To upload photos choose "Upload images" and "Computer" button. You will be able to choose images from your computer/card/camera etc. Do not upload more than 30-40 images to each album. It will take long time to upload. When images are uploaded, click "Create an Album" blog stile and you can optionally name your album. After your photos uploaded you have to copy web link and post on this site.
    The example of what it may look like is here: http://imgur.com/a/XcOUZ.
    For those who wants to download photos from those albums that will be posted all you have to do is choose option "download album" or to download a single photo click on the top right corner of the photo and choose "download full resolution" option from menu.
    Let me know if you have any questions.

    I had such a great time at my first THOG meetup and now Stone Mt is on my list of favorite hiking place in NC. It was so great to meet many nice and fun THOGers on this trip. Henry, thank you much for organizing this trip and thank you to Genya for photographing. Looking forward to the next event.

    WOW...this sounds like it will be so much fun. I'm running 20 miles the day before so Im not sure how good my legs will be on Sun, otherwise I would jump on this.

    September 11, 2013

  • Uma S.

    Would love to go but have a bike ride already planned. Hope to get to this place next time - it sounds wonderful.

    I RSVP "Yes" but have to confirm my schedule for Sunday and end of the day will change it if i can not attend.

    September 11, 2013

    Sounds great! I have a couple of other things scheduled that day already, so can't do a 12+ hour hike/trip. Looking forward to next hike though!
