Eventually, we began to climb up and away from the creek
and we came to the top of the ridge with the trail marker. We all stopped to check out the signs and get our bearings before turning left and angling down the mountain. Larry had some issues with the distance. I think he questioned Lou..who was quoting, Gary..but hey..it's all good. :-)
We enjoyed a burst of energy when we caught sight of the tower at the Powerhouse. Soon, we were crossing the highway and joining the Cougar group. We found out the over-achiever had taken off up the highway to fetch a vehicle back to us. Now that's what I call a good guy. He shuttled Debbie and I up to get our vehicles, and when we got back to the Powerhouse, the other group was emerging from the trail. It was a beautiful day, and a great hike with some wonderful folks! By the way, Che dispensed the much sought after chocolate at the Powerhouse! We love our Che!!
