We reached the highpoint around 10p where we had a fine view looking north to the lights of Hollister. The views in other directions were nice as well, the hills and valleys of the Gabilan Range to the west and south, the Diablo Range to the east. Marty had brought a hot thermos with venison sausages that we enjoyed in the still air while taking in the views. He'd brought buns and spicy mustard as well, making for perhaps the finest summit snacks I've ever enjoyed. After our fine dining experience, we packed up and returned along the same ridgeline, marveling over the hike along it a second time, before returning to the ranch road we had started up and taking it back to the car. We were back in San Jose shortly after midnight, making for a door-to-door outing of around five hours - our first and best moonlight hike of 2014. This one will be hard to beat.
