    Thunder Mountain was flush with flowers. Everyone was in a great mood with the fabulous weather. Even car trouble wasn't all bad--it enabled us to spend more time enjoying each other.

    Estimated time back at park and ride?

    July 2, 2013

    • Shannon B 😍

      Hi Diane, At least 2 hours of drive time each way and figure 2 miles per hour of hiking, round up a little for messing around time and you have 8 hours, so earliest is 4pm, 5pm is more relaxed. If time is a major issue then perhaps it would be a good idea to pass rather than make people feel rushed.

      July 2, 2013

    • diane

      Thank you. I just wanted to know if I have ample time to attend something else afterwards, but I would never do it if it involves rushing anyone.
