The View from a Peak

Life has peaks and valleys. It is good to savor the view from the peaks.

Today Pam and I hiked Valencia Peak at Montana de Oro State Park. We found the marker at the summit.

A steel surveying marker in rock.

It was a beautiful, sunny afternoon. The views from the peak were very good. Soon after we reached the summit fog began to roll into Morro Bay, obscuring Morro Rock.

During the hike the air seemed still, but at the top of the peak the wind was cold and strong. It was a good setting to fly a kite. The winds were too strong for the kite, however, and it lurched drunkenly around the sky.

It is good to have moments to savor.

It was a good day.
