Thanksgiving was great for me. I hope it was great for you too. Besides the usual activities, we hiked to the top of Montecito Peak on Saturday. There was a ~1000 ft elevation gain and 10 miles of hiking. This was tiring enough for us city folks, so we were suitably impressed by the numerous people on the trail who were participating in the Santa Barbara Nine Trail Run. This is a 35 mile, 10.5k ft elevation change trail run.

Looking at the 9 Trails map, it's hard to believe that we hiked to the top of Montecito Peak. It looks so far up. I do know that we got up to a fire road and a beautiful view with quail and hawks. Along the way we passed trail markers #1 - #5 (unitless) which also gave elevation.
