20 or 16 mi: 5 Brooks, Wildcat, Arch Rock, Wittenberg and Rift Zone Loop

20 miles is making some of you queasy... so I've come up with a 16 mile option that cuts out the Rift Zone stroll... nearly the same amount of ups and downs...  just not the flat 4 mile trek at the end. This option will require a bit of cooperative carpooling between Bear Valley and 5 Brooks.

Since Susan couldn't make the Wittenberg Loop on 5/17 , Here's a longer variation on the same theme. I'm going to call this one very aggressive...
We'll be on Pt. Reyes again... this hike is big enough that y'all will see me use a day-pack with hydration and my sticks...

What we get: Forests, Vistas, Ocean, Geology, Seismology, Flora, Fauna and most of all friendship.

Bring Layers, sufficient hydration for 9+ hours of hiking, snacks, good humor, shoes with soulful soles, hiking sticks, fortitude, attitude and gratitude.
Large fissures along the rift trail or an invasion of  Jack Finney imagineered body snatching seed pods cancels...  see: wikipedia entry

      And that was just the walk to your car to hug you before you drove home to your tub!

    Five stars... one for each of the five star women brave enough for what ended up being 22 miles....

    would anyone like to carpool from the San Rafael park and ride?

      See you at the park and ride at 8:30 ... (oh my goodness... I can't believe I organized a hike where I have to be up THAT early in the morning!)

      That would be the Smith Ranch Road park and ride...

      Welcome to the group Debbie... I'm taking some of these women on a 22 mile day hike summiting of Mt. Whitney on July 3rd... looking forward to having you on one of our hikes soon... when you hear our laughter and teasing on the trail you'll soon see we are mostly seriously fun and seriously grateful to be surrounded by wonderful friends and great beauty...

    This will be my last big push before I sit on airplanes and in airports for the next two weeks. I will sure miss hiking with the "Dykes."
