Last Day, November 2009

I can't fool you. It's not the last day of November. But tomorrow is Zen Monday and I'm not about to mess with that.

So to continue our experimental monthly look across Johnson Field, let's see if anything's changed.

Hmm. Looks like the Psychocross fanatics got their rudders stuck.

I kid. The local Cyclocross riders train here sometimes. They're nice. Insane but nice. Dog-friendly. Could be a little freaky if you're on horseback. But there's room for everybody.

Wonder what it looks like now, after all the wind.

I'm trying to guess what went on here - was it one crazy cyclist getting dizzy, a whole pack of them, or something/someone else...?

Petrea said...

Hi Unseen, thanks for your visit!

I should have a chance to check within a day or two, Karin. The wind was wild last night!

Bellis, I think it was a pack. They'll set up a course and work it. Or maybe it was the wendigo?

And here I thought it was a good old fashioned crop circle! ;)

I was in that area this afternoon, and it was eerie. All kicked up ashes and brown clouds. Reminder of how much damage has been done.

Petrea said...

Crop circle! Wish it was.

Hiker, I'll be checking it out tomorrow.

Did anyone see the article about the Devil's Gate Dam and how much it just might have to hold this year if we have major mudslides?

Bellis said...

In that article in the LA Times, there's also a photo of a horse that got stuck. I was there when lots of staff from the Pasadena Humane Society were digging it out. Took an hour or two, and they got it freed just before sunset. The rider had taken it through the wet mud and ash washed down from the burn areas, and it sank very deep.

Cyclocross Crop Circles. Try saying that when you've been cyclocrossing for too long...

I'm glad to hear there was a happy ending to the horse story, Bellis.

I hadn't seen the photo and just went back to check for it (I recognize the rider!). I don't like to let Boz in the water because it's so black now I'm afraid it's full of ash. And the mud did seem awfully squishy. Forewarned.

Beautiful photo! And interesting to see the changes of this particular place over time.

Petrea said...

Hi Ms. M. When I'm standing there taking the photo it seems to have changed so little. Then I look at last month's photo and see vast, subtle differences.
