Senior Citizen Hikers on Cerro Alto

Cerro Alto  Senior Hikers

Cerro Alto My daily hike , a 1600 ft elevation gain , moderate to strenuous hike located in the Los Padres National forest on highway 41 between Morro Bay and Atascadero California . Today i hiked to the summit with a friend Jim , both of us are the same age  , a proud 76 years old and still strong !

We witnessed a group of hikers that captivated our hearts , four men that were senior citizens  belonging to a club of hikers named Trail Runners , a man named Jim seemed to lead . There were four men, the oldest of them was Gus featured in the rear age 78  , all the rest of them were considerably younger than myself  or Jim . we met them as they were descending the most technical 
part of the trail , they were slow and very careful . Gus fell down and had a very difficult time getting
back up as the trail was very steep and the soil dry ! . .
The following following photos and video clips are meant to complement them for their efforts in enjoying nature and engaging in a healthy sport --- hiking .
I sure hope that we meet often on the trail .
Keep hiking !

Rule !! 

Guys Rule !!
