Hi.

Hiking, backpacking, and camping throughout Southern California and beyond

I should have waited to go to Middle Peak

Burning the brush I ran across this photo on SignOnSanDiego, which is the Union-Tribune. I should have waited for them to do this before I attempted my bushwhack up Middle Peak last month.

Firefighters John Reynolds (left) and Shannon Johnson with CalFire start a controlled burn in a wash on the north side of Middle Peak. The 70-acre fire was planned to remove vegetation in advance of planting 20,000 Coulter and Jeffrey pines in the spring. (John Gastaldo / Union-Tribune)

Here is a video by someone else that I found on YouTube:
