    A hike in April 2011 after a severe thunderstorm when most of the RSVP's cancelled; the rain stopped just as the hike began, but many of the trails were flooded...too much water even for mud! Some video footage (sorry didn't have a good camera with me at the time):

    Thanks Guy and Karen for organizing this meet and introducing me to a place so close to home/work. I can use it, in place of an evening at the gym, in the summer months!!! Also, good to see some familiar faces and new ones too!
