    This hike was fun filled, action packed, filled with humorous adventures and lots of sunshine. Relaxing at the beach with friends afterwards is just a bonus. Can't think of a better way to spend my Saturday.

    Hi, I still need a ride from Davis. I'd wait *right* off the freeway and you'd be headed west again in 3 mins, literally!
    However is like to return by 6:30. Anyone??

    December 27, 2013

    • Amy

      That would be great, Andy! Take 1st Davis exit at Mace. Go left at the light and left at the very next intersection. I will be standing on NE corner of Mace/Chiles (4811 Chiles Rd) from 8:15... Thanks so much!
