Cerro Alto

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 !
