This morning I was all set to walk along the San Gabriel River. A lovely stroll along the river is what I envisioned. Didn't happen. The Azusa River Wildnerness Park in Azusa was closed because of mudslides 2 weeks ago, and to add insult to injury it was a high fire danger day so they didn't want us anywhere near the brush.
For those of you not in the Los Angeles Area, or California, you probably aren't aware that we are in a severe drought. Its been several years since we've had "normal" rainfall and our dams are really showing it. This year we are down something along the order of 2/3 of "normal" rainfall which explains the pathetic condition of these dams.Doesn't bode well for us down the hill that rely on this water to recharge our aquifers.
I'll try next week to take a walk along the river in the Azusa River Wildnerness Park. Again
