Beautiful day. Started early and there were few people there. Got to be a popular spot by 10 AM though. My spiffy new NorCal Challenge shirt drew several “Nice shirt” comments. Also helped half a dozen other Challengers recognize me. ????
An easy trail which I made more challenging by lugging around 20 lbs in my day pack. (Gotta get in shape for overnighting it on Rose later this year…) The final section to the summit is still closed. Took the stairs up to the top… was dragging by the last few ????
Bald Mountain is a nice side trip while you're there. Just a short walk up a fire road but the view is worth the few extra minutes… since you're already there.
