    Thank you Dave! What a beautiful hike with so many incredible views. I loved the mushroom hunting. They were tasty - I did cook them first. Nice to see everyone and catch up. Looking forward to more hiking with you all!

    Great hike, Dave, I loved it, demanding/challenging/obstacle ridden uphill, mushroom gathering for grand cuisine later, gradual grade downhill, a lovely day with great weather and always the very best company and companionship. Welcome to Bob, welcome back Ulrike, great to see and chat with everyone!
