The reason I flew into the bay area early was to attend the annual hike in memory of Vinay. Pretty much the whole family showed up again this year, as well as some friends. It was nice to see everybody again.

This year the hike was at Uvas Canyon County Park, which is a gorgeous Calvin & Hobbes kind of place.

The trails were scenic and well-marked, and everyone had a good time.

After a while we were treated to some open views from our new elevation, but a couple had beat us to it so we didn't bother them… too much.

Raj bought a house in Morgan Hill, close to the park and my folks' place, so once the hike was finished we regrouped there for lunch. During the tour, Deepak was inspired and sang us a song while in the attic.

Hopefully I'll see you all again next year.
