Buick Meadow

Explored a different part of Annadel today on the mountain bike via the South Burma Trail to Buick Meadow. This was a nice 6.5 mile ride from home.

While there I met a gentleman hiking. He had hiked in from his home outside of the park. He figured he would hike around 14 miles for the day, taking 5 hours to do so not counting an hour lunch stop. This would be longer in mileage and time than I would do on the bicycle for the day. He was 65 years old.

the California newts (Taricha torosa) are marching to mate! "Taricha" is Greek for "preserved mummy" possibly in reference to the rough-skinned, terrestrial adult form. "Torosa" is Latin for "full of muscle". The forearms of the males swell during the breeding season.
