    Dear friends, sharing with you a sad news that Mo Dad just passed away last night. Unfortunately, his Dad is not in the states, we hope Mo has a safe flight back home. Please bring him the best "flower" from HikingOC and our prayer is with you and your family, Mo.

    Yes we were very lucky:). We drove home in the rain, sleet, a little bit of hail, and snow! The three pictures I posted were actually taken by Ana-Lisa as I had to keep my eyes on the road to get us home safely:). I especially love the one with the two trees! Sorry I posted them with the pixes for the Saturday hike:( Thanks Lily for organizing this hike and for sharing all the beautiful photos of this weekend's hikes. It was fun seeing and hiking with everyone who attended! See you all on the trails soon!

    Cee, Ana-Lisa, Vance and Jenny got to see the snow fall before sunset while we got a great time at the Slot, really narrow and the clouds very "mysterious" too...I got so much photos to view and to post...No one has said anything since...hummm...was it because of holidays, "cold" or this day was so "extreme" that made you "speechless" ??? :-) Thanks to the rain; otherwise I still postpone these photos.

    I updated the post, please read and help to check maps and look for hiking info on the websites. If you have suggestions or favorite hikes, please print them with you! I will make time to put some more info.

    Greetings to the friends who are on the waiting list! This event is almost as an exploratory as I only was there twice. The park is hugh, so our plan will have a couple hikes in two different locations. I'll have more details closer to the day. If you are planning to join and stay over night in San Diego for New Year, please indicate. You are welcome to join for the day hikes, but to let you know travel distance is 3 hours each way. To avoid unexpected or unhappy issues that you may have with us, I am going to say it straight, so you won't be surprised later. If I haven't met or hiked with you before, please forgive me to be picky, but I prefer to know you before having you on this trip. I'm on the trails every weekend, so you still have plenty of time to get to know me from now to the end of the month and vice versa (give me a chance to know you). Thanks
