Junipero Serra Mountain
5600 ft peak
Sat ,April 27 Wayne , Autumn , myself and my dog Sierra and Autumn's dog Barlow hiked this tall mountain that has a 4200 ft gain and 98 degree weather . The dogs suffered  and made this adventure a lot more challenging , but all in all we had a great time . We started at 8 am and were back at the trail head by 5 pm . Both dogs hit the wall . The night before  Wayne and I enjoyed a valley hike  and  a fine dinner with wine at Memorial Park at the trail head . The evening after hiking the mountain we enjoyed   cold beer , wine , steak dinner , and live campfire music ! 
Below are photos from the valley below at the trail head and one from the top .

Sierra always enjoys a view !

The wild flowers were knee deep and Sierra is in fact standing up

Very interesting hikers -- note the Junipero mountain in the background .
The girls have their hiking gear and water supply -- note the hiking shoes hanging from the girl's neck !

Sierra always finds friends !
