Valley Spokesmen club ride to the summit of Mt. Hamilton from the intersection of Mt. Hamilton and Alum Rock rds. In celebration of his birthday one of our members and his daughters provided sag service on this ride - bringing sandwiches, sodas, and warm clothes up to the summit. Lick Observatory is located at the summit with a visitor center, gift shop, and vending machine for refreshments. A number of telescopes are still in use while others are more of historical interest.
