On Saturday, November 29, 2008, 14 hikers set out from the Douglas County Courthouse parking lot amid fog and very low clouds. As the caravan progressed towards Glide and later Steamboat, the foggy conditions dissipated until the day turned out – as promised - sunny. Starting at the Steamboat trailhead and hiking up the mountain, the group dispersed into several groups; the race horses, the middle group and the photographers accompanied by the leashed dog. Reuniting at the Williams Creek camping spot then continuing on, the group quickly reestablished the trail order. After one hiker stopped at Bogus Campground, the others lunched in the sun at the top of Fall Creek Falls, then followed the beautiful replenished stream back to the shuttle car.
There were some comments regarding the promise of the sun which was delivered and also comments about the distance which had been advertised at seven plus miles and was actually closer to eight plus. One new hiker (Chris) turned around at Fall Creek Falls and hiked back to Steamboat for more of a workout.
