This was a 6 mile hike that we presumed would not be too difficult. WE were in for a BIG surprise. This hike had an elevation gain of 1,550 ft. We completed the hike in 2 hours and 40 minutes with a few short breaks and our pace was about 29 minutes a mile. There were some long steep climbs. Patty Flores, my sister decided she was ready to come back from her break and this hike gave her a glimpse of what she has been missing. She toughed it out, got it done and never complained. I have missed hiking with her so I was glad to have her along. Jodie and her daughter, Angelica and Mark joined us as well.
