    Hi Everyone, does anyone remember taking a pic,? please read below One of your members took an awesome picture of me on Mount Tamapalis with my arms up praising The Lord. She tried to send it to me put it did not go through. Can you ask around the members who went on the walk last Saturday if they remember taking it.
    I would love the picture.
    I am the English lady, I wore black pants and a white shirt, my hair was up in a ponytail.
    Thanks Helen

    Sorry Helen, I woke up this morning with some kind of stomach flu, I don't even want to eat, which is unusual for me. I really wanted to go, but have to cancel.

    Nice Helen! I'll be in the vicinity doing a run on the Dipsea trail with a few friends. So I'll be on the same mountain as you, there but only "hiking" in spirit!
