    Darn, I was there at 8 this morning and didn't see anyone. Since I live in the area I thought I knew exactly where to go....something tells me I made an ASSumption ;-) Well, met up with a nice lady and her lab (Patricia and Maya), and had a nice hike. Hope to see you on another trail soon.

    Looks like it's cooling down for Sunday's hike. Perfect!
    Ed, we could use your GPS again.

      Lol, Coco and poor Lennie harnessed together??? I'm not sure who I'd feel more sorry for...Lennie or your friend in the wagon bumping through the underbrush chasing after lizards!
