|9:30a.m. Mega Hike Departure|
Once all 3 Mega Hikes left, I concentrated on getting all the lunches lined up for the Take a Hike and Lunch.
|21 lunches ready to go|
It started out being a sold out hike -21pp. There was a group of 15 from out of town and they got lost enroute, so they didn't join us. One party of 2 was missing. I ended up hiking with 4 people. What a great day! Perfect actually.

When we arrived at LaSalle Canyon it was time for lunch. What a great waterfall.

There were many people at LaSalle Canyon. They just kept on coming.

On the way back to the Lodge we saw this Raccoon. He or she was really close to the trail. There was a couple ahead of us who walked right by it and didn't see it. I have never seen a raccoon so close in the daytime while on the trails. On the parking lot at night, Yes, but never on the trail during the day. I must say, that is an awesome photo.

We were almost back to the Lodge and both parties wanted to get a group photo. We had such a great hike.

I will leave you with this: Wherever you may hike or walk, just put one foot in front of the other. It's all about the experience not the destination.
