No matter how prepared I am, this is always a tough hike.  Admittedly, this year, I'm in worse shape than when I did it in 2019 but back then I was well-conditioned and it didn't seem to make a difference.  I developed a theory on the trail that this mountain has extra gravitational pull, sort of Bermuda triangle-like.

Anyway, views are awesome, top is really busy with all sorts of people summiting by foot, bike, and car.  There were paraglider's out on this day and it was cool to watch them swinging around in the breeze higher than the summit.

Loop back on the fire road gives really cool view of SF and is one of my favorite vantage points in the area.  But that road goes on forever!
