It had been a while since I last went, nice to go back up with friends:




weather was unseasonably cool, nice for hiking up

We were not in a big rush, so we got to the top in 3h40 (3h15 moving time) for 7 miles and climbing about 3000ft up

The picts from the top aren't bad, but they're better on the hike:



Then, what goes up, must go down, and it's gravely and slippery at the top, after that we got to some nice trails again:

We then took a slightly longer trail down to the farm, it was more shaded and a nicer trail



good job!

Back at the bottom, a lot of people were looking up at a tree and we found why. An owl and its babies. That kind of stretched the zoom on my camera, but it worked:



All in all, it was a bit over 15 miles and just a bit shy of 8h, we took our time.
