Invigorated by the best Oktoberfest yet, eight peakbaggers strolled up the road from Cow Canyon saddle to Sunset Peak. Like last year's hike up Sunset on Oktoberfest Sunday, we faced 80° heat. Unlike last year, we couldn't see downtown Los Angeles.
A special treat was having two people on their very first ascent of a peak on the HPS list: Sandra and Susan. Another treat was the work Louis did on the sign-in sheet. He's a graphic designer by profession, and Editor of our Lookout. By the time he finished decorating the sign-in sheet, it looked like the Book of Kells!
