At Home in the Pico:
During the years of my archaeological field school at the Presidio, I stayed in a tent at El Capitan State Beach, the "Scholar's Quarters," and the Pico Adobe. The Pico was absolutely the best! It had a stove that was identical to the make/model of the one in my student apartment. I could see the stars at night through the shingles of the old roof-- a very romantic effect when combined with Spanish guitar music, or Fiesta sounds from the Plaza. It was pure luxury to have a warm shower each night without putting quarters in a machine for 3 minutes of water! I even sat around and collected peaches from the former tree in the garden. What a place! Even my wife and dog loved it.
