    It was a wonderful hike. Being new to hiking and to RRHG I didnt mind bringing up the rear and I didn't feel rushed. The experienced hikers were helpful, such as suggesting a bite of chocolate when I was feeling tired, to pointing out beautiful vistas and waterfalls. Thank you to all for making me feel welcome.

    It was a great hike. Being a new hiker and member of RRHG, I didn't mind bringing up the rear and I didnt feel any pressure to have to rush. The more experienced hikers were helpful, such as suggesting a bite of chocolate to give my energy a boost, to pointing out waterfalls or vistas. Thoroughly enjoyed the hike and people I met.
