Stay In

The sign keeps no one out of nowhere; it’s a remnant of the old days, but of which old days I’m not sure. A skilled rider leads young student riders across the northern part of Hahamongna Watershed Park with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab in the background. I took the photo last Sunday. The ground was [...]

Roberts Camp

Roberts Camp

Since we’re coming up on the weekend, maybe you’re thinking of a hike in Big Santa Anita Canyon. And since I had a very long day I’m putting up another picture I took there last week. Bellis and I wondered if these steps were once part of Roberts Camp (1912-1931) because the commemorative sign for [...]

New Blog in Town

New Blog in Town

Do you know what a “Preventorium” was? Roberta Martinez does, and you’ll find a 1922 photo of of one on page 60 in her book, Latinos in Pasadena. I finally bought my copy of the book and I’ve been nosing through it. Pasadena’s Latino history goes way back to before Pasadena was Pasadena. Roberta’s book [...]

iPhone Wednesday #4 – Genius

iPhone Wednesday #4 – Genius

I’ve downloaded some iPhone photo apps but haven’t used them much. I didn’t do anything special. These photos were taken with the iPhone, then uploaded and edited on the computer. These plants have their own genius and don’t need much editing.The apps I’ve got include: CameraBag, AutoStitch (at which John is a genius), TiltShift (look [...]

Measure CC Forum

Measure CC Forum

Longfellow School At the City Council meeting I attended three weeks ago, the council chamber was crowded with citizens eager to learn the fate of Hahamongna Watershed Park. But before we could discuss that there were other items on the agenda. One was whether or not the council should recommend the passing of Measure CC [...]

Zen Monday: #85

Zen Monday: #85

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo’s about. There’s no right or wrong. It means what you think it means, or what you want it to mean. I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something [...]

Sunset Over Mud Flats

Sunset Over Mud Flats

Nature has made changes in the landscape. Who am I to argue? Like I have a say in the matter anyway. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Bombadil’s

Bombadil’s

I promised the Altadena Hiker I’d post a photo of one of the cabins in Big Santa Anita Canyon. (Knowing her, I’ll bet she’s seen them all.) Here’s Bombadil’s Castle, one of the fancier ones. Look at that stone wall, will ya? I may be wrong but I’ll bet they put it up because this [...]

A Scratch on the Scientific Record

A Scratch on the Scientific Record

Sometimes I post a photo because it’s pretty. Sometimes I post a shot of what’s happening in town. This one’s educational: illustrative of a natural process that’s hard to describe any other way. After the Station Fire came heavy rains, which brought a flood of muddy ash into the lowlands. The landscape of Hahamongna Watershed [...]

Canyon Depths

Canyon Depths

I think you should click to enlarge this picture. The other day, Bellis (who often comments here) and I walked from Chantry Flat to Sturtevant Falls and back. (The road up from Sierra Madre is open during the day.) Our trusty pooches came along, too. The water is flowing clear and clean in Big Santa [...]
