Write-up by Peter -- Pictures by Karl
This weekend was originally shaping up to be an INCH holiday, but I had a few hours free on Saturday morning so I decided to schedule a short hike to visit The Priest. This would get me back home by noon to catch Rounds 4-7 of the NFL Draft. Let's do it!
Most of the front-runners chose to do an extended loop (thumbs up), but Karl, Peter E, and I headed back down the hill via Lime Kiln Trail back to our cars. We made it back before 11, so Karl and I had time for our usual post-Priest hot dogs at the Happy Hound in Los Gatos. While we were eating, Karl checked his cell phone and saw that the draft started at noon Eastern, not Pacific, so had we missed Round 4 and half of Round 5. D'oh!!!! At least I caught the first 3 rounds on Thursday and Friday, so I got to spend some quality time with Mel.
