This hike started out badly – the hike leader left her pack at the senior center! Fortunately, she was carrying GPS, camera, water, and a fleece jacket, and no rain was forcasted. Hikers provided sunscreen and said that they had extra lunch. So, we started off on the hike, taking the right-hand-side trail. A little ways up that was blocked off with branches. Oh, well, we can handle that. We ended up going to the Tram via the service road. After that, everything went well. We had lunch at the optional view waypoint, turned at the Tree Spring intersection, and crossed the various ski runs. Thanks to Paul C for driving and sweeping.

It was a valuable experience for the hike leader — going light had the same result as using an inhaler!
