Double Black Mountain - 27 Mile Day Hike in the Santa Cruz Mountains

Date: 4/18/2009
Distance: 27 miles
Elevation: 5,700' total gain
Weather: 60s-70s, sunny

This was an event I organized for the San Jose Hiking Meetup. For all the hike details, downloadable map, etc. visit the hike page here:

Very little time or energy for photographs when I organize these Meetup events, so just a few pics for this adventure.

This shot captures the size of our group on mile one, when we were still all clumped together. San Ho Hiking is an unstoppable force!

Looking east into Silicon Valley from Black Mountain. Diablo Range in the background.

Deer in the late-afternoon sun. This was immediately after the climb up Indian Creek Trail on the way to the summit of the mountain for the second time.
