Cerro Alto

Thursday afternoon I summited Cerro Alto and I met this healthy Couple at the top  ,
The young man had just proposed marriage to her . Beautiful day , beautiful couple .
I recorded their names , but due to wind noise , I am not sure I have the names
His name is Seth and hers is Brisa or Lisa .
Both are from SLO
Fast hikers and at the bottom of the mountain they left the
trail head via bicycles .
Congratulations .
below is a recording of this couple

Interesting Hikers on Cerro Alto Summit

Yesterday I met these two students of Cal Poly at the summit of Cerro Alto
These girls are serious hikers and claim that hiking is their only sport
they have enjoyed some back packing   in the Ventana Wilderness .
Always a pleasure meeting youth enjoying hiking in the wilderness .

Cerro Alto

Warm spring day at the top of Cerro Alto 3-11-17

What a beautiful day on Cerro Alto , warm and no wind at the top . Many folks were enjoying the mountain today including amber , Kylie , and their dog Bear , they are camping out at the summit . Very brave of them because it is a little spooky up there at night , however they have a full moon , a sunset  and a sun rise to enjoy ! I hope I spelled the names correctly .I also hope the video works .
