    I just got on here from the wait list. Is anyone able to give me a ride leaving from San Francisco? I live in SOMA but can meet anywhere. Super excited. If you can give me a ride, please text/call[masked]

    As far as getting back my guess would be around 2, it won't be a fast hike, but it is short, then again it always depends on the group, anyone in a rush can head back early which is easy to do once be get down to tennesse beach.

    Unfortunately I have to be in the South Bay earlier than I thought so I won't be able to join the hike. Bummer, I really was looking forward to seeing the wildflowers!
