It's been two years since my winter beater bike has been tuned up and I've notice the drive train is sluggish and shifting too so dropped it off at a new shop, HMS Bikes. The owner is a nice guy and he sells shop T-shirts for $10 so can't beat that. While waiting for the tune-up, I made the quick drive to Sombrero Peak. It's a short but steep hike of 1.5 miles to the base of the peak, which is near vertical walls with the rumor of a way to the top.
Dang, the views to the south were neat.
Arriving at the base, I scouted to the left and then to the right but could not find a way up. Doesn't look like much in the image but those are 20' slabs of rock and no way up.
I took a seat and pondered my situation. My situation is good but let's not do something stupid and instead come back with someone who knows the way up. Well, time to go back and collect the bike.
Interesting plant and note the emerging sprouts around it. Big, big weekend to report, coming soon.
