Downtown LA, Grittith Park in Background

Downtown LA in Background (middle left) and Griffith Park (middle right)
How things look from the top of the Verdugo Mountains above Burbank.

Spent the last two days testing out a newly modified pair of Vibram FiveFingers that I plan on using during the upcoming Angeles Crest 100. I sent in my check today, so I am official.

Saw two deer on this run, one yesterday. Yesterday I also saw one of the largest rattlesnakes I have ever seen in these local mountains. He was extremely calm at my approach. When you're a big snake, you don't have much to worry about. Beautiful to behold.

I have custom modified my FiveFingers. I am still testing them to determine if I have come with a real solution for some of the moisture problems I have had in runs over 30 miles in hot weather.

You ain't kidding.

I have not seen a mountain lion yet, but I have seen paw prints of mountian lions on several occasions in the Verdugos and near La Tuna Canyon.

People don't think they are around, but they are there.

There are a lot of deer in the Verdugos too. And some big rattlesnakes. It is amazing how much wilderness exists right in the backyard of LA.
