Trail Blazer

Met a legendary trail blazer today who has combed our hills for more than 60 years. Gordon Rowley will loan you his tools to help clear brush from the network of foot paths lacing the hills. The rich history of Gordon was intertwined with larger than life Glendora characters of Michael and Kaia Maris Rubel, Norma and Ida. Gordon reported seeing the family of bears, momma and two cubs - now a year older.

After scanning the hillside for signs of deer, I turned around and saw a deer eating in the cool shade.

Also saw a salamander, the first one since the flooding of the creek in May.

All in all a good hike for a Sunday morning.
