For me Rattlesnake has become a go-to conditioning hike. It actually takes me longer to drive there than to hike to the top but the view sure beats the gym! I have a goal to wake up really early this summer and hike to the top before sunrise. I imagine it would be beautiful.
The past few weekends have been rainy, therefore the sad hiatus in hiking. Then the first sunny weekend we had (hellllo last weekend) we ended up staying in the city, doing an urban hike and dusting off our bikes for a trip to Golden Gardens.
