It was great to see fabulous Fruitboy, Keleb, and Crude (well-behaved puppy!) here on Maui, along with lovely Leaf, Deseret, John, Marcos, and Diana (the last two of whom we picked up hitching).
Haleakala is awesome… we braved freezing 50mph winds at the summit, so not much hiking!
I had a great visit with ranger Sierra at Pinnacles National Park, the newest national park in the U.S. I hiked for two days, seven miles the first day by myself and seven miles the second day with Sierra. I thought I spied the endangered California condor, but it turned out it was just some turkey vultures.
The fifteenth annual San Francisco Folsom Fair Eve Queer Longhair Party was lots of fun. Thanks especially to Guy for setup help, Scott and Mike for lighting, Scott for bringing and handing out the hairy name badges, and everyone who brought refreshments or helped out in one way or another. Bill and Robert, who couldn’t attend due to having a baby two days before the party, made special appearances at the party by video call, as did Andrew from Colorado. The party went smoothly this year with lots of visitors from near and far and lots of good times and new and renewed friendships and connections.
Special bonus shot of Herb and Jae at the Hole in the Wall during the Folsom Street Fair.
Thanks to Christoph for the photos ze took at the party:
