Treepeople of the World, Unite!

Treepeople of the World, Unite!

Earth Day has come and gone — did you plant a tree? I sure didn’t. No, I chose instead to indulge in a grand festival of paper products. If you, too, want to atone, or are just in a tree-planting mood, consider joining up this weekend with Sue Stranger, owner of La Cañada’s own Adobe, […]

The Battle to Save Mt. Wilson

Astronomers from around the world, not to mention all of us locals, watched as the Station Fire swept toward Mt. Wilson, threatening to destroy the historic and important observatory, not to mention a lot of L.A.’s communications infrastructure.

Scenes from the Post-Fire San Gabriels

Our friend Steve Elkins, a documentary filmmaker and cameraman, shared some terrific photos from a bike ride in the San Gabriels. They’re both beautiful and a little haunting. Steve and his Sunday-morning cycling group rode up the Arroyo Seco Trail (aka the JPL Trail) and on the Brown Mountain Trail. Thanks to Steve for taking […]

Timothy Rutt, Altadenablog

Given his devotion to Altadena, you might think that Timothy Rutt, writer/editor/chief bottlewasher at Altadenablog.com, was a native. In fact, he hails from Fort Collins, Colorado, and he found his way to California the way so many do — seeking success in the entertainment industry. After earning a journalism degree from the University of Colorado, […]

The JPL Trail After the Station Fire

The JPL Trail After the Station Fire

Our friend Bruce Moision — JPL engineer, dad, jogger, Bungalow Heaven resident and bicycle commuter — rode his bike up the usually busy Gabrielino Trail yesterday (what some of us call the JPL Trail, because it’s just east of the JPL campus), as far as the Nino picnic area. He followed the big road, on […]

Amazing Station Fire Time-Lapse Video

Ah, the circuitous routes that get traveled in cyberspace. My friend Nancy Ransohoff, who lives in Santa Barbara and has had close calls with both of the recent SB fires, sent me an e-mail from her friend, who got it from her friend, who is a teacher at St. Francis, which is three miles from […]
