A chilly (but warm at times), overcast (but sunny at times) and gorgeous autumn day with 11 comrades (Great Hikes Plus One – meetup.com), followed by a late lunch at The Fish Market in San Jose.   Saved Mt Umunhum to cap off my 2019 NorCal Six Pack of Hikes, as it is my “hometown hike”, with Mt Um's concrete bunker clearly visible from my backyard in South San Jose.   Easy peasy, compared to most of the other 5 hikes:  9.3 miles with 1,394 feet of ascent, including some “bonus mileage”.   The weather (and maybe holiday shopping, etc.) clearly kept most other hikers away, as we passed few hikers along the way.  In fact, there were ZERO cars parked in the summit parking lot, which is a most unusual circumstance.   Looking forward to meeting up with fellow NorCal Six Packers in January!
