Take Care

Take Care

The lure of a waterfall; it’s too tempting for many. The reality is that the canyon walls are steep, and the shale geology in Eaton Canyon makes the earth crumble under a hiker’s feet. For an enthusiast, it’s hard to imagine that this environment is not awaiting our exploration. We like to be physically tested, […]

Oh, Arroyo, We Love You So…

Oh, Arroyo, We Love You So…

From hiking the trails, walking the dog(s), running the paths, navigating through the new landscape of fallen trees after The Windstorm, to strolling and chatting with a friend or walking solo at sundown to catch the settling of the day, the Arroyo feels like our Arroyo, something personal and meaningful.

The Power of Nature on Display

The Power of Nature on Display

My mom and I took a trip the other day on the trail that winds up the northern part of the Arroyo Seco behind JPL, where we saw considerable damage from this winter’s heavy rains and flooding.  Though the trailhead is posted as closed due to the Station Fire destruction of summer 2009, you can […]
