On 4th of July, I took my group to Pk. 4,504'.  It's a short hike that would leave time for partying later, plus it has a flag on top which I figured was appropriate for the holiday.  smile.gif I had 2 takers for this hike, willing to brave the steep & somewhat overgrown trail to the top of this lesser-visited peak.

On top:


While we were on the summit relaxing & having a snack & conversation, one of my companions said "What was that?"  They both had heard what sounded like a tin roof rattling down in the valley, where there were some houses.  I hadn't heard it since I was eating &/or talking (maybe both!) @ the time.  Checking the news later we found out that an earthquake struck @ approximately that same time....though none of us felt it.  paranoid.gif


On the way down:



We wound up trying a different Mexican restaurant on the way back, but it was lame (no margs, to say the least).   down.gif
