On Sunday we went to cemetary park to let the dogs loose.  This was Hike#685 but I told Jess that I wanted to go to Santa Barbara to cover new grounds since the cemetary was a duplicate.  She remembered back in her high school days that she used to climb to the V in Ventura.  This is less than a mile from where we were, hence the above post.
 
**The hike to the V was quite simple.  It's only a quarter mile from the road but I stretched my wandering to a mile to qualify.  There will be a fork in the trail and the lower right fork takes you right to the V.  I will return to see where the upper fork goes...
