Cerro Alto Evening Hike

Just a few photos to share Cerro Alto evening hikes !
( located in the Los Padres forest on hwy 41 west of Atascadero Ca. )
All the photos below were made between Christmas Eve and New Years day.
One must expect to be caught in the dark when hiking down from the locations depicted here on Cerro Alto , but the rewards are great in terms of evening photography adventures !
So carry lighting and warm clothing .
Note in the winter I always carry rain gear , warm clothing , two flash lights and emergency gear as one is usually alone when hiking after dark .

Yep ,  thats me above and this shot is decending from the summit .

My son Luis made the above four shots on Christmas Eve .After the hike we had beer in the parking lot at the trail head in the dark
. I enjoyed Christmas carols that he played on his gutar .  All made for a very special hike !


When viewing this last image , click on the image to enlarge and look for a person in the background . He is a friend  ! That is Mark a regular on this mountain and he usually hikes late
in the evening on a very lonely trail !
