      Hey walter - nice job on the portrait shots. I added the one of you by the stone bridge - looks like you are playing peek-a-boo by that tree!

      I can't join the hike but I have done a lot of hiking at MBF. Go with boots. I was there a month ago and it was muddy. With all of the new snow melt, it will be even muddier.
