    beautiful park. friendly group. wish we could stop halfway and wait for everyone to catch up. by the end, everyone else had left for the Unknown Restaurant. luckily we recognized one person who told us which restaurant, and she was able to follow us there. wish we knew about how long the hike was going to take beforehand.
