Leaders: Patty Kline, Bill Crane
We met at the Woodland Hills carpool point at 7:30AM. There were 14 people in all, many new to the peak bagging experience.
It took until around 10:00AM before we had all carpooled to the roadhead beyond Ojai. We didn't have a key to the gate for the road up to Chief. People were generally pleased because many of them had just come out for a hike.
It was so hot that day I didn't want to think about it. It must have been in the low 90's as we were hiking on a day with no wind. There was a lot of poodle dog brush along the road. Look, but don't touch! We had a potluck lunch on the top. The view was great as we perched on top of the rocky summit.
Many thanks to Bill Crane for being my assistant, filling in for the original assistant. Bill is currently starting his second year term as Secretary of the Angeles Chapter Executive Committee.
After the peak we all decided to have dinner at a Mexican restaurant in Ojai. Bill picked the restaurant, but we all agreed with him that there is no good Mexican restaurant in Ojai.
