Hiking up Mount Reba with Sam and Presto! After a night of much eating, everyone else decided to just head back to Berkeley. Sam and I figured that as long as we were up in the mountains, we should actually go hiking again, though. It took a while to get out of the house because people cooked kind of amazing breakfasts and then Jens and Ingrid's car wouldn't start, so we all hung around in case they needed help getting home. By the time we actually trundled out of the house, there wasn't much time before dark, so Sam and I decided to just see if we could make Mount Reba.
It was a pretty awesome hike, and we would have actually appreciated snowshoes, but of course we left them in the car today since we'd just carried them the whole way yesterday... I guess the extra 1000ft of climb really made a difference. With all the trudging through snow, it was pretty slow-going, but the views were beautiful, and it was nice to get a better hike in before heading back to the city. Mount Reba is just a high point along a ridge of similar altitude high points. We didn't technically make the summit because we were rapidly running out of daylight, but looking at a map, the high point we stopped on may actually be higher than the "official" summit? Anyway, we'll have to come back either with snowshoes or in the summer and make it all the way out on the ridge!
