Why don’t I do this more often?

I really meant taking the dogs on a hike, but it certainly could refer to how often I have been adding posts to this blog. For some reason I can’t seem to stay on top of it.

Sunday afternoon I took the dogs on a shortish hike on the Gabrielino Trail near JPL in Pasadena. Just a couple of miles from the house. Scot has developed a limp I can’t quite figure out so I wanted to not do frisbee or ball chasing to see if that would help.

As you can see from the video below they clearly had a good time. Especially once they found the water. Beag, in particular seemed energized by it.

As anyone local knows we had a tremendous wind storm here last week and the effect in the canyon was staggering. Almost all the trees were ‘topped.’ Literally had the tops snapped off.

Nature can be beyond astounding. I am humbled by the damage done here and am more than a little curious about what it was like in this canyon when it was happening.
