On Friday, the 8th, Linda, Mike, Nick, Bob, Marilyn, Nora, Sara, and I hiked the Wagner, Granite, and Bluff trails. At the next intersection with the Granite Trail, Marilyn, Nick, Linda, and Bob returned via Granite and Wagner for a 5+ mile hike. Mike, Nora, Sara, and I continued up the Bluff Trail and then hiked Pemberton, Rock Knob, Gooseneck, Delsie, Granite, and Wagner for an 11.5 mile hike.
