Hey Hiking Pacers,
As always, such a pleasure hiking with our group… We had chocolate ice cream bars and fruit bars at the peak… Thank you Julia and Todd for taking the heavy weight to the top… I am sure it was a good training for your future planned trips!!! Also,… someone, in our group, found out that water is excellent for removing stuck lips/tongue from a frozen fruit bar… hehehe
Also, the Dim Sum and various dishes we had after the hike were very delicious!!! thank you Frances for recommending a really good place to eat after the hike…
This week we are doing a hike to Mt. Wilson! Hope you can join us.
