2016 Hike 1: Mission Peak

July 4th 2012 was my first hike up to Mission Peak. I've returned since a few times, although mostly in the summer months, when the trail is dry and dusty and the sun is scorching.

Today, the first hike of the year, I went up again together with troop 14. We hiked up to Mission Peak, starting from Ohlone College. It was cool, the hills were green and we got a little drizzle along the way. Some parts of the trail were very muddy: extra fun.

Mission peak stands 2516 ft (766m) tall and you almost start from sea level. Today, the view was excellent. On occasion we could see as far as San Francisco and Oakland.
