    I'm hoping someone sees this before the hike. Been up half the night so far with stomach issues and don't think I'll be in any condition for the trail today. I hate to be a last minute cancel but I think I have to. I hope you all enjoy the hike.

    If you have plans to be back in town at a specific time, please don't sign up as this is the mountains and we never know for sure when we will be back. Having said that, I plan on being back at the cars before dark!

      Probably you mean the automatic email you received. When it was sent, there were 11 spots. Anyways, the wait list is small and I am in serious doubt whether I will go. In short: if you wanna go on this hike, join the wait list. But now!

    I don't believe there is a bridge, at least there wasn't one last year at this time. This part of the river is dry this time of year, so no problems crossing. We did this hike Nov. 13th last year.

  • Brenda

    Hey Conrad, is there a river crossing or is there a bridge now?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
