Trail Dog


A Valentine Day gift from my family I hope will soon become a trail dog . Her name is Sierra , I love the name . Sierra is a 11 week old German Shepard /Lab mix . She started off a little shy but I think she has promise .

Special Thanks To My Loving and Thoujghtful Family !

I will start her off on a very easy trail --- Jim Green Trail 1.5 mile loop in beautiful Atascadero Ca. located in San Luis Obispo County Ca. , in the heart of wine country . She will graduate when she is capable of hiking Cerro Alto a 1800 ft elevation gain , my daily hike . This training should take about 6 weeks . ?????-- I hope ! She then will move on to bigger advantures .

Cerro Alto Interesting People

Cerro alto ( a 2,650 ft mountain ) located between Atascadero and Morro Bay Ca has become a 1800 ft elevation gain challenge for young climbers lately and I love it ! The youngest to be added to a list of successful adventure seekers is Scarlett age 6 years . Her and her father John ( both pictured here ) has my admiration ! Keep up the good work !

Cerro Alto

Feb . 4 th . , Saturday , I hiked Cerrro Alto ( Between Morro Bay and Atascadero Ca. ) with my grand daughter Natalie and friend Robert . the weather was great , very clear as you can see in the photos of us withe Morro Rock in the back ground .We had a super time . In addition to seeing many people we saw some wile life on e of which was a dead owl -- sad --sad .

We also could see very clearly Mount Whitney with binoculars. The camera I had today could not record the photo .

This hike is always fun , but I must say today was special !
