    My sincere apologies for missing this hike... I was truly looking forward to it, but I broke my hip the day before this hike and have been in rehab until yesterday. I hope to heal soon and join future meetups. I hope I didn't take the place of someone who wanted to go but couldn't because it was full... it was unavoidable.
