Mission Peak Heights 1

Just a short distance from my house is this nice peak called Mission Peak.

On a fine Friday evening, I decided to summit this rather short and steep Peak to watch the Full moon rise with a bunch of Yelpers.


This is the fourth time that I am climbing this peak. But for this one, which I was climbing at night, I armed myself with a flashlight and a tripod. Both proved pretty useful - the flashlight helped me navigate some tricky sections near the summit and the tripod, well, to give shots like the above.


This is the view looking north towards the city of Fremont in the last remaining rays from the sunset. The peak in the foreground, along with a small pipe, provided for an interesting silhouette.
