    What great day to hike with great people. I also wish Dan a speedy recovery so he can get back on the trail.

    Beautiful weather, great group! The sun was out above, snow cool texture below- perfect maiden voyage for my microspikes. Randy is a good driver, too.

    It always seems like the hikes where we're worried about the weather turn out to be some of the best.

    This was a spectacular spring day with our surprise snow storm. Great to spend it with all of you. Dan, the toast of the day went out to you since you could not join us. Hope your surgery is a success and you can join us on the trail soon. Thank you Debbie and the Boomers for a fun day!

    I'm going to be a woose and cancel. Was really looking forward to it. Hope to see you the next hike.

    There is some knee-deep old snow under the new snow: you will need to wear snowshoes or hike at the back of the pack.
