Cerro Alto on Labor Day 2015
Cerro alto Mt . located on Hwy 41 between Morro Bay and Atascadero Ca.
I expected this to be a busy day on the mountain and found it to be hot and quiet but
definitely an eventful and beautiful evening . I started my hike at 5 PM and descended the mountain at sunset exiting at dark with a lamp lighted .
I met only two hikers and they were at the summit , My dog Sierra loved them .
Two young school teachers from south county SLO
They will introduce themselves in the short video below .

upon descending the mountain I enjoyed beautiful sunset images .
I am also including a couple of shots I enjoyed today
The bear scat here is a berry shown with my finger pointing at same .
Near the top and after sunset Sierra stopped me on the trail and started growling and barking
as she does when she encounters a predator animal . sure enough , I looked up
in time to see the rear end of a bear running away into the bushes , a scare , yes but
always a welcome experience !
