  Top of the first switchbacks, looking back east to the parking lot. Zooming in, Bluie can be seen! Bob, Gabi, Ann, Keith Very tall grass in the meadow - about 4 feet high! Looking back across the meadow, east. After the meadow the trail goes fairly straight west. Just before it starts to zig again is a patch of poison ivy on the north (right side going uphill), right ON THE TRAIL. We didn't notice it until we were going back downhill!
