Ascent Trip ReportSantiago + Modjeska Peak with Christine. Early start to the day and started hiking by 6 am. Total time on the trail was exactly 7:03 and distance travelled was somewhere between 22-23 miles. 5k of gain - maybe 5200 feet. Nice hike - had a wicked rattlesnake encounter on the way down, approx 2.5 mile to the trail head. Have never seen one this size before.... OR positioned up and ready to strike. Oh well - they exist and are a fact of life. Nice geocache on Modjeska.... just a TON of antenae on Santiago. Nice day! Hot day!
