    Thank you all for coming. Thanks Leigh, Keith and everyone who helped the big group and the snacks. It was a clear evening, nice weather, great hikers and the fireworks as usual the past 2 times I came up the same: many and everywhere...it was hard to have closed shots, but great view for our eyes. I shared some closed shots at Disneyland fireworks few days before went there with my niece and nephews...

    The group was fun to hang out with and watch fireworks. The fireworks were too far away to see to get pictures.
