Ramona trip with the guys, 2009

Some of us guys got away for a few days without the wives and headed down to Ramona for a hike, some football and relaxation (with a few pranks mixed in as well). From left to right we have Tyler, Tim, myself, Kyle, Marshall, Gabe, Dale, Loyd, Mikey, Tino and Ray.
Romona Hike
It was very HOT for a hike but we survived, just barely! It felt like 95 to 100 degrees! Dale, Tino, Ray and I hiked to the Devils Punchbowl and back (about a 4 mile hike) while the rest went even further. Below is the trail we all took.

The Devils Punchbowl
(Ray’s bummed the waterfall wasn’t flowing)
I was not of the majority that went further, and kind of glad since we all ran out of water 3/4 of the way back to the cars. The main reason I didn’t continue further was because halfway to the Devils Punchbowl, one of my boots decided to have a wardrobe malfunction and just as we got to the Punchbowl the other decided to do the same.

I guess it was so HOT the glue melted causing the heal to separate from the boot creating flip-flops. Maybe I should patent this idea, or NOT! Never again will I buy Stanley boots.
Good thing Mikey had some string from his backpack that I could use to keep it from totally coming apart and keep it from flopping around for the most part but this kept me from hiking up to the top of the waterfall and beyond. Maybe next year!
Here is a shot of Loyd at the top, just left of the waterfall (unfortunately, no water was falling this time of year).

We played a few games of football. On the day we got to Ramona on Friday and another on Sunday. Here’s a shot before the game.
