Journal entry – 29 Mar 2016, Tues – Hiking Bishop’s Peak

One of the local trails heads up to Bishop’s Peak, one of the 9 Sisters – a series of mountains that run out into the ocean. It’s near Cal-Poly, and we shared the trail with quite a few college and high-school students who are out on spring break. The weather was great and the views were expansive, especially up at the peak. The trail started on the north-east side and worked our way up to the south-west, affording a change of scenery as we worked our way around the mountain, from overlooking SLO to a view across the hilly ranch/farm land.

At the peak, Ashley waited while I scrambled up to the top of the rocks. We’re not sure how allergic to poison oak we might be and she didn’t want to find out the hard way, as it seemed to be everywhere.

Before leaving Ashley put together beans in the crockpot and prepped dough for bread. When we returned she baked the bread and made rice. Once everything was ready we all headed over to Matt’s apartment for supper. He shares a house with a couple of other guys. It has a fabulous view of the bay and some amazing landscaping – he really lucked out. Supper was delicious, as always!
