Sotter than hell on Cerro Alto ,so I hiked late from 5 PM to 8:15 pm .
I climbed slowly the temperature was 92 at the start . The decent was beautiful with dark trails and red sky . The 80 degrees breeze felt good in the dark . The night sounds were enchanting and spooky at the same time . I hiked the last mile with a lighted head lamp . I feel so lucky to have sierra to watch my back .
I had the mountain alone .
