Ascent Trip Report

I carried my ever growing daughter up this one and she didn't want to walk much. It's just as well it was almost dark by the time we got back to the car and she gets distracted easily. The hike has great views and the top is like a real mountain unlike many in this area with a significant drop down to Alexander Valley and tremendous views. A propane truck passed us and gave us no mind but there must be cameras on top at the communications equipment. We had been eating a snack for about 5 minutes when some electronic sounds came on a couple times. 5 minutes later two sets of bugle battle charge music came on. Then someone spoke out, "It must have been a long hike for you two, just make sure you are down by dark". Apparently they don't sweat it too much to have hikers up there as long as they are respectful. Great peak to summit.
