Cerro Alto

President's day  weekend 
Busy weekend on the Cerro Alto , full camp ground which included many hikers and dogs .
I hiked late into the night and enjoyed the sunset. warm spring like weather .
Sierra loves the water in the streams .
Little flowers are early , and the miner's lettuce is beautiful !
At 76 years of age I am blessed to be able to summit this mountain with my Sierra .

this last weekend I saw more cat tracks than dog tracks .on the rinconada trail

this is a fresh cat track on topof a fresh fading boot track in the rain .
I met the hiker who made this boot track . on Cerro Alto
Below is the fresh cat track on Cerro Alto where the above couple were followed on Cerro Alto
