|Trail into the low clouds|
There weren't many outdoor enthusiasts on and about the mountain while I was there, but I did encounter a guy whose Pitbull came running around a corner to greet me; it was very friendly. The man apologized for letting his dog approach me, but I said, "No problem--it's fine."
I had to cut the hike a bit short today because it's that time of the week when I have to make joint shopping visits to Target and Albertsons, two stores that conveniently stand next to one another in the plaza off Lohman Avenue.
