SEVERAL ROCK PLAY AREAS FOR THE VERY IMPORTANT MONKEY IN ALL OF US

Yes, this hike is for you, the members of my VIM club, who are willing to bring me cookies and put up with my preposterous singing and "alleged" guitar playing. This is a very special place which I trailblazed a year ago and which no other MeetUp hike leaders take people (as far as I know....and my memory is as good as Donald Trump's.) So consider yourselves very special! (DISCLAIMER: there are no extra benefits from being a VIM club member. I will not bring champagne on the hikes. All cookies will be eaten. No refunds.)

--------------------------------------

Monkey Business, definition (Rex's dictionary): hiking plus assorted tomfoolery involving cool boulders and caves, providing a workout for both legs and arms, while our hike leader plays guitar and "sings" and ruins your favorite songs

HIKE LENGTH: about 4 miles, some on trail, some rock scrambling. Pace: slow, lots of photo ops, great views (of me, mostly)
