A fine hike today, on a lot of the trails that Emma McCrary built :
She built the Lost Empire Trail, the Big Ben Trail(s), and the S-Cape Trail (and I think the "no name" trails).
She left us 3 years ago, but with bunches of trails to enjoy . . .

Fun hike all.
Great hike...sorry I forged ahead...
Great hike Veronica! Thank you once again. Let me know when the chili is ready! ;-)
Thanks Veronica and Sara! My longest hike since I f'ed up my foot. Wish I would have done the last climb but it was good to listen to my body as my foot was starting to have a chat with me. And Elias...a rockin' teenager...such awesome energy...loved it!The hike out was the perfect push for my foot without further screwing it up. I am still so unnerved that I hurt that lizard and made him/her scream. It was on the bigger side...I hope it didn't have a family to take care of. OK I'll stop now...have fun tomorrow, I'll be biking...then I have a trip but I'll look for some more of your hikes when I return in August. Thanks everyone! Woo Hoo to upcoming Saturday event! Susan
Susan. I'm glad you took care of yourself. I'm glad you enjoyed Elias. He is Soooo precious to me. We are dying the tips of his hair blonde right now! As for the salimander, intent in required for guilt in a court. You had no intent to harm , so let yourself off the hook as soon as you can. I've stepped on at least 3 in Aptos Creek, but we never intend to. They have the entire forest to roam. Perhaps the ones on the trail itself have a death wish? ;-)
Great hike, thank every one
Working that day. Will make the next one, I hope.

I'm assuming this is the parking lot just up from Highway 9 on the right side just past the bend?

Yes Susan. That's it! it's .5 mile above the Chevron at the Hwy 9 light. You coming? Cool!
Elias and I will be there!

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.
