Grizzly Peak was still closed by snow when we went to Oregon earlier this month, so we hiked at Hobart Bluff instead. It’s not as beautiful a hike as Grizzly, but the view was all right. It was about forty degrees on the top of the bluff and windy as hell; it’s ninety-eight in Austin now. I’m wilting.
I’ll be going to Santa Cruz for the 2008 Dickens Universe in late July. I hear the mornings are cool there.
