Pictures from the First Day

I dropped Cathy off at De Anza College at 6:30 on Friday morning and waited to watch everyone leave after the moving opening ceremony. The route took the walkers almost by our house, behind Rancho Shopping Center, then onto Covington and out to El Monte. I was able to check out the Covington School "Grab and Go" on the way to work.

In the evening I drove the entire length of the first day's 24 miles - it's a long way - did not find Cathy at the camp but did manage to get a few pictures before it was too dark.
