Comments
Comments: Originally intended to do an out-and-back along Quarry Trail, but trip was rough enough that we decided we didn't want to return that way. Came down to Mack-Anna-Straightback because we knew that trail was in better shape. Many thanks to Tim, Mark and Bryan for all the trail work and in general for being good sports today!
