At the overlook - No equipment. Walk, run, push, pull, jump, crawl
A great morning at Lake Sonoma. Bright sun, crisp air, warm earth.
Looking at the marina on the Skaggs Springs arm.
Trail walk to the bottom lot to get warmed up.
On the slab/horse rail - 10x push ups, 10x sit ups, 10x 10 count plank, 10x body row
Log Run. Run on the logs around the lot, jumping from log to log (well... sometimes)
Hike back up to the overlook.
The Crapper Traverse - on the outside of the handrail, work around the slab using different foot moves (cross, reverse, hop). To make it harder, jump down on the back corners, then jump/pull yourself back up. When you get to the front on the other side, reverse.
The backside (ha ha.. the crapper traverse... get it?).
The 3 Rock Hop. In the main area there are 3 clusters of 3 rocks. At the first cluster, jump onto the first rock then jump to the other two.
Continue to the second cluster and repeat.
Now run up and down the concrete stairs while weaveing between each pillar to the third rock cluster.
Repeat the 3 rock hop here. 3 Rounds.
Rampart Crawl. Jump on the concrete wall and bear crawl. At each break jump off, then in one movement, jump back on... continue to the end. 3 Rounds.
Chin Up/Pull Up station under overlook.
The Pillar Weave. Either pick a route and do it for time, or randomly weave around and between the pillars. If tourist see you doing this they will probably call security. It doesn't matter, they're overweight and drunk! Maybe they won't believe what they are seeing.
Lateral Bench Jump. Jump up to the left, jump down to the left to the end. Repeat going to the right. There is another bench behind and down from this one, continue on to it and repeat
With Tom S. and Kevin H. From the High Tressel trail head out of Paynes Creek, CA, we hiked down to and along the North Fork of Antelope Creek to the confluence of Round Mountain creek. We crossed there and hike up RMC a few miles to our first camp.
On day two we climbed up to Indian Ridge and a trekked to the official Ishi Wilderness boundary. Back down Indian ridge to our second camp, then back out on day three.

I joined Jaimie's group for a steep hike up the east slope of Mt Diablo from the Morgan Territory trail head. It was the first time I have ever hiked Mt. Diablo, so it was nice to be with a group that knew their way around the mountain and moved pretty fast.
We connected several trails Jaimie knew about to end up on the North Peak summit in about 3 hours. The fog was thick so I missed the fabulous views from the top, but a great workout with friendly and knowledgeable hikers.
Approx. Miles: 7.0
Approx. Time: 06:30:00
Prepping @ the Morgan Territory trail head
With the thick fog, I took few pictures on the way up. Here is a ladies summit shot on Mt. Oylmpia. Elena, Kathy, MJ, Seena.
On the way over and up to North Peak.
Waiting for everyone to regroup at the simi-technical section on the way down.
