Our group decided to knock out two peaks in one day! Yes, we are crazy! Mission Peak was our second peak in the later afternoon. After putting on our legs 8+ miles earlier in the day we were in for a rude awakening with this strenuous climb to the top. It was a gorgeous day, but this trail offers no canopy for shade. I certainly wouldn't do this hike on a hot day. Luckily for us we had a cool breeze for this round trip of 7+ miles. We loved all the dairy cows we saw along the way.
We rounded out our day with 15+ miles of hiking! We totally enjoyed this Nor Cal Challenge – we hated to see it end! We will be back for more! Until next year!!
