    Forecast has a low chance of rain by 7 PM. I bet you all probably finish by then; however, as discussing with Mike, Dave and Edgar, we can shift the hike an hour earlier just in case. I know it's a bit late as some may not check the website or email, so we will change to 4:30 PM is we receive many votes posting notes here. If not, we have to leave it the same time.

    Please let us know by noon. Thanks and hope you all have a great hike today with our 3 Gentlemen. Welcome to HikingOC and Peters Canyon to first time members :-)
