Kerby Peak 2-4-15

Yes, it really is 2,800' of up in 3.25 miles, but it is a steady up with very few downhill or level sections so you barely notice the uphill. Although, to be totally frank, we all shed at least two layers in the first mile.

We started above the valley fog and below high overcast; both burned off as the day progressed. Temperatures were in the 50s all day and the weather was quite pleasant except for the wind on the summit. We sheltered a bit behind some rocks for a Hank lunch on the peak. It was interesting to note that the Manzanita were beginning to blossom on the rocky south facing slopes even as high as 5,500'.

Refreshment was taken at the Four Daughters.
