    I am not sure I trust that cow. Also, a little suspicious of the ducks.

      D'oh! Well, it seems she could not pass up her reflection. Subtlety, not her strong suit.

    • ! That JOHN G.

      well... you know what they say... if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck... it must be a spy...

    The current weather forecast says 88 degrees in the valleys on Sunday. How much of the hike is shaded?

    ****TIME CHANGE - TIME CHANGE - TIME CHANGE****
    if you're as dumb as I am and can't figure out what time the hike starts because of the TIME CHANGE... if you DON'T change your clock back... it would be NOON

    October 30, 2012

    • ! That JOHN G.

      oh... there are no cliffs or abrupt changes in elevation...

      October 30, 2012

    • Eric B

      Just abrupt changes in revelation, usually accompanied by cliffhanger moments.

      October 30, 2012

  • GERN B.

    Im really bad at the time change thing so Im going to get there on Friday night so I dont miss it so if you see somebody sleeping in a green Ford Pinto (with his mom in the back seat) that may or may not be on fire please wake me up so I can go on the hike
