Peter owes a writeup! -- Pictures by Jiri, Karl, and Ramesh

Kudos to UG for leading us up to the peak via a new trail. According to Tom Stienstra, it's the steepest trail in the Bay Area, and it sure felt like it. On top of that, everyone unanimously agreed we had the best after-party spot ever. All in all, a good way to spend a beautiful Sunday.

UG -- thanks for taking us up the steepest trail in the Bay Area, you bastard!

The views from the top were worth it

Assembling at North Peak (we also hit a couple of others along the way)

This old truck made it to the peak before running out of gas

Time to head down to the party

Dinah did great to keep up with Jane

Karl thinking about his O'Douls

They can taste the beer!

Viola -- it's the Pacific Ocean!!

Beautiful day to be at the beach ...

... or in the water!
