Mission Peak, CA Felix Wong

Hiking up Mission Peak in Fremont, CA, numerous times between April-May 2005 in order to train for Mt. Shasta. Most of these hikes would be with Wendy, who is a lot of fun, and a loaded pack (usually 32 lbs., but later on, 42 lbs.) Click here for photos.

To train for a Mt. Shasta summit attempt, Wendy and I hit Mission Peak almost every Tue and Thu with loaded packs (e.g., 32-42 lbs).

This was before she was loading up her pack with things like bottles of champagne.On this Saturday I went up with Adrian, Evelyn, and Sharon, with no pack.  Here's a hangglider dude coming down for a landing with Evelyn looking on.The hangglider dude lands safely.  It was fascinating to watch.Made it to the top.
