    Varied, always interesting route--the 14K forest loop was beautiful--looking forward to repeating it without a monsoon rain when we can enjoy more of the views!

    I hope this walk gets repeated another time. The route was great, and I'd love to try the 14 k.

    Good walk. More hills than I was expecting, but this is my first walk in many years, so I'm just getting used to the rating system. Organizers were super friendly and cheerful, which was commendable because the weather conditions were awful. Had a good time and plan on doing more walks soon

    My umbrella helped carry me part of the way at the top, but the raindrops blown sideways by hurricane cross winds soaked everything down to my skivvies. Fighting the weather always focuses the mind and helped make for a record time. A big thanks to all the volunteers who braved the conditions to man the stations and help make this happen.

    We made every effort to hang the ribbons in the highest branches possible in order to prevent the Sasquatch from messing with them. I even stood on Sharon's shoulders a couple of times to really get them up there. I hope the sweepers won't mind too much :-)

    Marking is done and the walk is ready! We were walking above the clouds today! Hope it is that way tomorrow. The first 2K of the 10K is in the woods with a tree canopy. The 14K has about 6K in the shelter of the woods.
    See you all tomorrow.....

      The walk routes will be marked with arrows and ribbons and walkers will also receive written directions and a map. It's a great walk!
