|Paralleling the west side of the mountain|
I was feeling a little down about Becca while hiking, but that was remedied, in part, by encountering four dogs. The first two were running ahead of a man jogging, and the second two were trekking ahead of two women hikers. The most satisfying encounter was with one of the latter pups who licked my hand while I petted him.
There seemed to be quite a few outdoor enthusiasts on and about the mountain, as indicated by the large number of vehicles in the Sunset Area parking lot, but the above-mentioned humans and canines were the only ones I bumped into.
