    you're welcome bruce. Now DOWNLOAD the map! (just giving you a hard time.) The map is really great to have.

    Fun time. Nothing like a cold beer and food at Irish Legends afterward.
    That's a must-do after the hike.

    Thanks Linda L - nice time.

    Even though I was late and missed the group, I did hike for over 3 hours and immensely enjoyed myself. I thank Bob for giving me good directions so I would not get lost on the trails.

    Be careful with the Google map for this. It didn't exactly get it right for me.

    Palos is basically my backyard. Maybe you will see me hiking solo somewhere out there, although I generally hike off-trail (respectfully).
