Cerro Alto and interesting people I meet daily

Yesterday I met this lovely young lady on Cerro Alto , her name is Erin , and has a brother Andrew 
 My son Luis photographed her soccer photos when she was in school and he coached her brother in cross country running team .  Small world . She is from Santa Maria and the last name I believe is Hocks .?

Cerro Alto late hike

Yesterday I had an interesting hike on Cerro Alto as I hiked late to avoid the heat of the day . I first met two fun little boys Carter and Ryan with dad Kent , They were visiting from Tempe Arizona .
As I was descending at sunset I met a young couple who are regulars and they were sporting new backing gear and training for their hike to Sykes in the Ventana wilderness . Their dog too was in training with a new pack . They were climbing up an were prepared to hike in the dark as they descending . I love seeing adventurous young people hiking . I only wish I could remember their names . If they see this post I hope they contact me at
