Two more anvil trail preserves!


Monday, 1 September, 2014

Today I finished patrolling all of the remaining trails in the Mid-Peninsula Open Space District’s preserves between Saratoga Gap and Sky Londa. 17 miles, 3600 vertical feet; I had enough water and enough calories. A good day.

That leaves me with one more on Skyline, El Corte de Madera, two down in what in comparison we call the flatlands, two that are open only by permit, and three down in the south bay, which I have been deferring in hopes of cooler weather. Making progress.


It’s easy to see by the tattered wings that these are two separate butterflies.


We humans are not exactly enamored of thistle, but there are second opinions.
