This was a few hours of egregious peakbagging, an embarrassing and shameful display of stat-padding. I had driven to San Diego specifically so I could drive my daughter back to UCSB the day after she'd seen the play Hamilton with her mother (who was more conveniently flying back to San Jose). Little did we realize that US101 was still closed at Montecito due to mudslides and it would not be reasonable to reach Santa Barbara from the LA area. So instead we bought her a train ticket and I was to drop her off in Irvine to catch an 11a train. She wanted to get a hike in with Dad before her return so I picked out a semi-random peak from PB that would amount to about a mile hiking, all told, just enough to use up the available time before she needed to get to the train station. Unfortunately it was somewhat of a poor choice. The other two "summits" were in Orange County in the hills about the upscale Aliso Viejo community. Neither offered much in the way of a workout or amusement. Feeling a bit dirty after these weak efforts, I headed north to Santa Clarita to have dinner and spend the night with my sister - a much better use of my time, as it turned out.
