Mission Peak

February 14 2004


random trip report

Rob Vaterlaus and I had intended to go to the Sierras and climb Pyramid Peak on snowshoes, but the weather was iffy so instead we climbed Mission Peak, near Fremont. Dave Weinberg came along. Afterwards we had bagels at a strip mall, and Berg had the canonical chocolate shake.

We went up on an exposed dirt road clogged with hoi polloi. On the way down we took a more scenic trail, 'Horse Heaven'.

At the summit. Possibly Diablo in background. Berg is a 'right'.
