Awesome view of the coast!
A longer than intended dayhike via the Kirk Creek trail from Hwy 1. A sunny start to the day turned to rain/snow/thick fog at the top, so no summit views for me... In the fog, I somehow contrived to get turned around on my descent, and ended up deciding to follow the Coast Ridge/Nacimiento-Fergusson roads down--35 miles, probably close to 7000 ft gain for the day! Oops.
First time was with my friend Wei and my brother Tony. Spectacular views of the ocean. You can see the Highway 1 bridge crossing the outlet of Limekiln Creek, almost a mile below.
