The much discussed Point Reyes trip took place this weekend! Tony Wong will provide the "official" trip report after he finds time to sort through the 500+ photos he took. In the meantime...
Twelve people attended, but I can only remember 11 names right now (my apologies to the 12th, I'm really bad with names). At any rate, a good time was had by:
Everyone but me hiked into Wildcat on Saturday from the south via the Palomarin trailhead and exited Sunday at the Bear Valley Visitor Center trailhead.
I opted to come and go from the east via fireroads on my bicycle. My route was 6.5 miles each way, starting at elevation 250 at the Five Brooks trailhead, topping out at elevation 1,324 before dropping down to sea level at the campsite. The ride took me 45 minutes each way and was a blast due to the long downhill sections at the end of each day.
It was overcast and windy all Saturday but the weather changed for the better and we had blue skies on Sunday.
This was my first time meeting any of these upstanding citizens and I was surprised to find Jay much mellower than my preconceived notion based on his posts while Ken Helwig was just the opposite. He had us in stiches all night and made sure no one in our group, or anyone else in Wildcat, went to bed before 11 pm.
I'll post a few of the less than 10 photos I took soon. I'm already looking forward to next year.
