I am not entirely sure how it happened, but we finished planning the outing for yesterday with plans for today as well even though there was never any question as to where or when the other would be. It is a much smaller group today with just Scott, who was generally the instigator of plans, and Linda, who decided to hike just today. Linda brought along Milo, who should be good for sniffing out geocaches and better be a good hiker because we should come out around 10 miles again today. She says that he is. I joined up because this hike swings past Rocky Peak, which is on the Lower Peaks Committee list and has a county line marker up on top. It should be a little harder to get to than the one I nearly tripped over by Random No. 2, but a bit easier than the one up on top of Dome Mountain. Scott has been before, Linda seems so disinterested that she forgets a peak was mentioned within seconds. Milo seems ready to get to wherever is "ahead" first. Although where and how we will come out seems a bit of a mystery, we get the cars set up for a shuttle between the ends of the two motorways and start by the big, beautiful sign for Rocky Peak Park. Onward and upward and into the rocky.
