It was a beautiful day to hike from Thomas Creek down to Hooskanaden Creek.  My son and I have never seen this many people on the trail and down at Secret Beach.  We counted a total of 114 people, 58 cars, and 1 dog.  The cars from other states included Ohio, Utah, and California.  There was a wedding at Secret Beach with about 50 people.  There are 3 miles that we cover, but I can't remember the numbers.  I think its 15,16 and 17.  It took us 2 hours today to hike the trail and down to Secret Beach.

The major item of interest along this mile is the land movement due to the slide at Hooskanaden. This year and last there has been minimal indication of movement.
