This hike is co-listed with the PCS and DHS. Named after Friar Junipero Serra, the founder of the Missions, this peak is the highest in the Santa Lucia range. The walk up is mildly strenuous with an altitude gain of 3900+ feet and six miles ONE way on trail, but the view is well worth the effort.
Pouring rain cancels.

Carpool: Cottle & H/A 85 Park & Ride at 7:00 am or call leader for trailhead information.
Leaders: Jesper Schou schou@sun.stanford.edu; Ron Karpel, ronny@karpel.org

In October 2009 Kelly Maas joined Warren Storkman for one of his infamous Nepal trips. They planned to climb Mera Peak, a popular trekking peak, but approached it from an unusual direction. From the sweltering lowlands where they started, to the frigid windswept Himalayan skyline where they were forced to turn back, they had a great time walking through beautiful countryside and experiencing warm
Nepalese hospitality. Kelly also had some unexpected adventures.
