Here are a few photos from our 4th conditioing hike for the extreme hike for CF!  It was an amazing day!  The weather was perfect, cool and in the 60s all day, but when your out there hiking you want it cool.  Lots of rocks on this trail but several beautiful views!  We had a group mascot today, a beautiful foxhound by the name of Cash!  Loved having him with us and hope to see him again!  Quit a bit of the trail was semi flat but followed a dried up river bed and made the hike slower for all the unstable rocks.  About 4.5 miles left of the hike was a pretty steep climb of about 1200 feet.  I know doesn't sound like much but when your starting to get alittle fatigued after hiking on loose rock and dodging beer Poo for 11 miles a steep climb for 1200feet can be challenging with about 8 switch backs!  but we made it only to have the last 3 miles to be very rocky and on a downward slop!  great team of folks hiking today and everyone did an awesome job!  Oh I did forget to mention the two times I fell while hiking down rocky slops!  Actually I thought I would cheat and just roll for awhile to save my strength!  Now to get my hiking clothes and gear in the washer, right now they smell so bad they're stand in the corner on the front stoop by themselves waiting the be asked in the house!  Stayed tuned followers our next hike will be 19 miles near Ronake Va.  another tough challenge!  The big one is closing in on us fast!  Please don't forget to donate, we are working really hard and this is worth the effort o
And an awesome cause!  Bez
