On the day we arrived at El Chorro Regional Park we tried to hike up the hill to Eagle Rock. Instead of taking the real trail, we found another trail that we thought would take us there. It was a nice hike but we never did get up to our destination.
After finishing our chores yesterday we decided to give it another try. This time we found the trail, just past the dog park and through a gate. This huge live oak near the trailhead with sprawling limbs sure reminded us of Florida.
It’s not possible to get all the way to the top of Eagle Rock, as this is part of Camp San Luis Obispo, a base used by the California National Guard. We saw quite a few large military vehicles on the road above us, and stayed on our side of the fence.
We know California is in a state of drought, but it sure looks green to us after spending so much time in the desert.
We had a nice sunset last night.
And Sophie and Elvis have been entertained by the bluebird again this morning.
Today we’re heading back to the coast. The cats still hate moving days, but they have it pretty easy the rest of the time.
