     Hi, unfortunately parking was difficult at that time of day when the weather is so great, so I was unable to connect with the group. I did hike the upper trail and around to Dog Mtn which was beautiful, but crowded. A lot of fair weathered people came to enjoy the day. Sorry I missed the group but did connect with one other wayward meetup hiker.

     The hiking group is great way to motivate yourself to go for longer hikes. There are so many different excursions of varying levels of difficulty, so you can tailor it to your needs and fitness level. And it has the special quality of being a shared experience. I'm more of a loner myself, but it's an easy way of enjoying time with people.

     One of my best hikes ever! The pristine beauty of Garabaldi lake and the sorrounding mountains is just amazing and beautiful! Burton Hut is quite cozy :) We had an amazing group of hikers too! Thanks to Rob, our faithful leader , and all the hikers who made it so much fun. It was challenging but definitely worth it! I'll do it again and again:)

     This is an awesome group, I thank the organizer immensely. With busy life styles this group helps people to get out and do what they enjoy. The beauty is if someone backs out your not left stranded. The people I met were diverse in age and ideals which led to wonderful conversations. Thank-you Kathleen and Ira for this great experience
