    Had a great time with everyone. Each of us had a little something to contribute and Steve taught us much about the plants we were seeing--some of them I come across in my gardening biz and had no idea about. I look forward to more outings and on the lookout for more good trails.

    Sorry I missed the hike. As the day wore on it just totally escaped me that at 5:00 I had a hike to go on. Maybe our next hike will be at a normal time of day?
