mission peak

Published 27 Jan 2014 – Updated 29 Jul 2017


Mission Peak in Fremont is one of the South Bay's most crowded hiking spots. The parking lot is usually so full you have a mile hike just to get to the trailhead. And from that point, the trail is steep, shadeless, and grueling. Actually, it's not really a hike, more just an uphill walk.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
