Trip Report/Photos

Ron, Gary, CK, and I were joined by men from the ManKind Project for a perfect day at Brownstone Park.  The 8 of us climbed the rock wall, did the zip line, went down the slide, wake boarded, and lounged in the gazebo solving the problems of the world.  Everyone agreed that we need to do another Brownstone day in mid summer.
