The Steps near Pozo

That is me on the famous Steps
near Pozo California.
This location is about 40 miles east of
Santa Margarita in San Luis Obispo Co.
The double track trail is a real challenge for modified four wheel
drivers .
And take it from me it is very steep
and rugged .
I thought it was time to hike this bad boy .
My friend Jim and I were up to
the Challenge !
I forgot to take a trekking pole
and it sure would have helped !
The turkey photos were
taken en route to Pozo this day.

This Bad Boy was angry and
ready for a fight !

Spring 2010 Cerro Alto

It,s spring again on Cerro Altoand the weather is warming up . People are enjoying the mountain in larger numbers . The Yuccas are blooming again . I just love the warm afternoons . I have been lucky to find some beautiful quartz crystals as you can see in my hand . We have had one day of rain each week lately and as you can see by couple in the white tee shirts the rain felt good to them as the made it to the summit without rain gear . When I took this shot I was wearing a rain suit .

Hope you enjoy the self portrait , I made it today

Pozo Cocktail Shots

A few shots from Pozo Cocktail shots

Pozo Cocktail

Pozo California , a very small town and the gate way to Los Padres Forest wilderness . I love this area of our county . It is located about 20 miles east of Santa Margarita Ca. The wilderness offers many beautiful and strenuous hikes.
Warm weather always calls for a cold beer at the Pozo Saloon . The people are always friendly and interesting .
The landscape is always changing in this area , but now is probably the most beautiful time of the year . I hope you enjot the short slide show I have prepared from yesterday's hike !
