    It was SO fun-like a reunion. So glad to see some "old" hiking buddies and meet many new ones. Thanks, Andy and everyone else who made the day great. I didn't know this park had trails-very nice.

    With Andy in charge, we all had a relaxing, low-key time, just right! So glad to have you back from Tucson, Andy, at least for a little bit!

    Just realized I have class until 10 at SPSCC. Can I be 10 or 15 minutes late?

    March 4, 2013

    • Andy

      Kimberly, if everone else is there do not know that we would wait 15 minutes, perhaps 5-10. Though with a large group should not be too hard to find us on the trail.

    I will be there with my small, polite dog.

    I'm from out of town -- can someone tell me if there one central, obvious trailhead at Priest Point Park? Every time I put in the address in Mapquest, Google Maps, etc. I get a different location. Thanks!!
