Trip details on Big Beehive and Devil’s Thumb: When I was considering what a good family hike would be I remembered a trip that Vern had done recently. So took the Friday off work and then did a family hike up to the Lake Agnes teahouse and then the Big Beehive. Had lunch with them on top and then I quickly ran up and down Devil’s Thumb while they finished lunch and headed back down to the teahouse. I caught up to them at the teahouse where we enjoyed coffee, lemonade and cookies.
