    MUDDY! Actually the overall hike was fine, but we had to hike on a horribly muddy rutted road for a half mile, which wasn't fun. The birds we saw were mostly on the drive in. However, the day wasn't too cold and the group was nice. I thought that seeing a freighter steaming directly toward us was pretty cool. (It turned.) This would be a better hike when it hasn't rained for at least a couple weeks.

    Mike, I'm not sure how to put "+1" in the waitlist request. Anyway, the two of us will meet you in the CB parking lot if we get accepted.
