It was the day of the wimmings, as we had more females than males on an event for the first time (six of ten were female). Brooke was our hike leader and did a fine job. Deanne made her first hike in several years; she is determined to be able to go backpacking again.
It was a hard day of hiking. We spent four hours twenty minutes to do seven miles, and we were all pretty footsore when we were done. But then, roads are hard to hike, and for the first hike after storing up our winter fat, I thought it went well.
