Sombrero Peak 12/21/2020
Starting immediately up the steep hill.
Since Wit just survived fight with Covid-19 he is turning back down to live another day.
We are pressing up.
John looks good.
Made it to the first bump.
After regrouping we continue.
Some bizarre rocks.
The ridge just across is Jacumba Mountains where we were last Monday.
Jacumba Mountain is at the end of the ridge.
One last sip before the summit.
Susan is up.
Preston is looking for the register. Not here.
Than Preston finds it just few feet from where Hersch is sitting.
John is up.
One last picture from the top.
We are on a way down.
Was steep up, now itís steep down.
Here is another chain in this area. Hmm? Why?
It is a Solstice day that means that Susan has Birthday today!
Happy Birthday Susan.
Still long way down. Group is just at the bottom of the picture.
Not much trail here.
Nasty catclaws are slowing our progress.
Palm grove at the bottom.
Complete group, keeping six feet apart.
Our party is in the sun after guarding Susan and her car to get out over the rocky road.
