    I did not see the acceptance notice until this am. I was hiking last evening with the group and did not check emails when I got home. So sorry I did not see this sooner. I would have loved to have gone. The hike last night led by Faith was wonderful!

    For the extremely late, the route will be: Old Briones/Left on Briones Crest/Right on Crescent Ridge/Right on Yerba Buena/ Left on Valley/Right on Old Briones.

    PLEASE leave extra time to get there as the road up to the staging area is hard to find, very narrow and winding.
