On Wednesday January 22, Ken McIntyre, Dave Capron and I attended the required annual chainsaw class at Cuyamaca Rancho State Park.  No, I did not take pictures of the bunch of us sitting around, eating donuts and getting educated on the finer points of chainsaw safety and maintenance.....
On Sunday, we had another cheerful crew meet up at Paso Picacho:  Henk Overdest, Anne Fleming, Andi and Don Ramer, Tony Sandoval and Dave Capron.  It was a sunny and crisp morning and after a short shuttle o...

Hi and Happy New Year to All!

K-Mac, Howard and I thought that the best way to start out the new year would be to kill some more ceanothus.  With that objective in mind, on Thursday we hitched a ride to the top of Cuyamaca Peak and began hiking down the Burnt Pine trail, noting for future removal various downed trees along the way.  After a couple of miles, we hit the last section of overgrowth and deployed a brush cutter and herbicide to their usual deadly effect.  This completes all of the h...
