Aug the 12th. Sierra and I enjoyed our hike to the summit of Cerro Alto as you can see Sierra at the top of the mountain . on the way back down Sierra was shot on the right side by a careless hunter from a distance of 4/10 mile . The photo with the bullet wound was taken after her visit to the emergency hospital . Several shots struck around us she was hit with one .
Folks be careful , there are some very careless hunters out there . It is my opinion that hunting should be prohibited in hiking trail areas such Cerro Alto located on Highway 41 between Morro Bay and Atascadero Ca. in SLO Co.
The hiking traffic here is very heavy .

wound after hospital treatment
Sierra is now improving fast and hiking
short distances . We were lucky that the bullet traveled a long distance and lost much of it's power . No broken bones
Just pain and hurt feelings and much anger !
