Ok folks, it is time to hit the hiking trails again! It was quite a summer with the major drought and much of California on fire. Sadly, so many acres of wilderness went up in flames and with the smoke settling in the Valley, it didn't make for the best hiking conditions. With cooler temps on the way and fire crews getting a handle on the fires, things are looking good and clear for some hiking! If given the opportunity, please take the time to thank our fellow fire fighters for risking their lives to protect and preserve what we love to enjoy and take for granted at times, our National Forest.
