I’ve been busy, and October is the climax of the business. But I have a fond memory of May 26, when I hiked up to and past the end of Panoramic Way into the open lands of the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve. The ground here is mapped as undifferentiated sedimentary rocks of the Great Valley Complex. Because the map doesn’t give it a name, I name it Panoramic ridge. This is the view east.

I wonder about the pattern of the ridges that jut west from the ridgeline, but that’s an intellectual task for another time. For now my main thought is, We live in such a beautiful area.
I’ll be out of town for much of the month, so don’t expect a lot of new posts for a while.
