Comments:

Coppertone and I had both taken part in the Klondike Challenge to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Jack London's life.  A select group of folks were invited to attend a ceremony at the park where some prizes were given out and stories shared about our hiking adventures.

After getting to know everyone the group set out on a 2.5 mile loop around London Lake.  The originally planned trek to the ancient Redwood tree was shelved given the recent heavy rains which had caused creek levels to rise.
