    I especially was impressed with the rock formations, such as China Wall. Weather was perfect for hiking, and I too agree the company and laughs were great.

    I had to laugh when I read your comments... I totally agree Jim! Great hike and wonderful company! Love the photos from Chuck and Robertson J. Thank you all !

    I really liked this hike: the first cross country leg; the "China Wall"; the green grass; the great company; crossing the streams (although I almost fell in); Chuck taking pictures (and always snapping me with my mouth open); the wonderful company; the huge boulder features; ducks in the pond (Arlene said she likes to eat ducks); the very clean restrooms at the lunch/picnic area; the very agreeable company; the many laughs I had (with Marla and others); almost 9 miles of exercise; trying to keep up with Sue; complaining at the trail junctions; and many more likes (e.g., the few drops of rain; not being too hot).
