Being without a car today, I walk to the trailhead, about 2.3 miles from my home in Azusa. I arrive at Vulcan’s gate a few minutes before 7 a.m. One car is there and two more pull up. The guard opens the gate promptly by 7 and I enter the trailhead parking lot along with the three cars.
there was a good article in the Tribune this week about it). There is nothing in bloom except for common sunflower and a few lingering cream-colored blossoms of California buckwheat as most of its flowers have turned rust red.
At 8:26 I meet the three young men who started the hike when I did and are on their way back. We chat for a few minutes. At 8:29 I step into the first direct sun. Last month it was 8:34. Good to know that the earth still revolves around the sun on its tilted axis and seasons come and go. This is the last weekend of summer as Wednesday, September 23 is the fall equinox and the introduction to autumn.
mind the seasons.
12:47 - End hike. It’s 100 degrees and I’m glad to be done. There are 6 cars
