    Fun fun fun! Even though we didn't make the loop backpack due to Dead Horse Springs being dry, we packed the week full of great stuff.

    Hi Peter, The Starbucks at 127 Ranch Drive is a good location. For me, Sunday afternoon would be the best time to meet, like around 3 or 4 PM. Would this be good for you? It would be nice if Ron Wolf could also come to the meeting and the trip. I browsed the photos but I don't think I found the photo you refer to below. I did see several nice photos from prior trips.

    As a teaser, if you go to my profile and click on the photos link, I have a photo taken in the main section of Marble (Slot) Canyon. It's the third one photo, click the link below the thumbnail to embiggen it.

    Hi Ana, Milpitas works for me. Anytime is fine. Will somewhere like Starbucks work? There's one at 127 Ranch Drive in Milpitas. Ron Wolf had some ideas too, maybe the three of us could confab if he's around...I'll shoot him an email. Are you in town this weekend?

    Hi Peter, It seems that you leave in Pleasanton and I live in Palo Alto. Should we meet somewhere half way like in Milpitas? I am open to other suggestions. I would like to go over the maps and logistics. Also, my schedule is pretty flexible and would like to meet earlier rather than later to confirm trip and start the preparations if it is a go.

    Oh, I didn't see you had actually RSVP'ed! Sure we can meet ahead of time, no problem.

    Sure, we could have a meeting if some folks are interested in actually going.
