Hoku’s out-of-town pack members are in town (all the way from Hong Kong, Hawaii and New York!) so we took them down to the Cabrillo Tidepools for a Christmas Eve morning hike. This time, we discovered a hidden trail leading up to a large boulder and besides a small section of the path that was overrun by thorny twigs (David carried Hoku through that part) Hoku made it all the way up the hill on his own.
Hoku is totally loving having his extended pack around and has been all smiles since everyone arrived in San Diego. Christmas tomorrow!
