Heading up Eagle Peak in the bright sunshine

Starting to see snow on the ground at higher elevation

The trail to the summit was a winter wonderland!

Giulia was enjoying the view

Not as crowded as usual -- that's a good thing!

More than just a dusting of snow near the summit

Posing with my new buddy at the summit

Add him to the INCH list before he melts

Slogging up to North Peak

That last little bit never disappoints (coming down was not too bad this time)

With Shuli at North Peak (after changing into warmer gear)

Time to head down to Olympia and then the quarry (the last few miles take forever)

Highest point in Contra Costa county
