Meet Festus and friend (Festus being the hound). I ran into the two along the Lower Arroyo Seco during a hike Saturday. Festus is a tall, handsome dog with a gruff voice to match his front porch, coon-hunting persona. He wasn’t too sure about a Nikkor lens pointing at his face but he did let me capture his striking profile.
The Arroyo Seco is a shady dirt road and trail which winds along a stream, eventually transporting hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians to a number of wooded destinations, all within a five-mile walk from Pasadena.
