 A few weeks back, Arleena and I tackled Bishop’s Peak which I thought was an amazing feet.  Climbing that mountain gave me a sense of accomplishment.  Last week’s climb trumps Bishop’s Peak!  By the luck of the draw, Arleena and I choose Reservoir Canyon Trail located just off the 101 Freeway at the base of […]...
