A cool day under cloudy skies didn't keep hikers and rock-hoppers away from Eaton Canyon. The little boy above was getting a verbal lashing by his parents for getting his shoes wet. But we all know that getting our feet wet is half the fun.
Eaton Canyon is in Pasadena, at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains--six minutes from my home base. During strong rain storms, the canyon floods, turning boulders, trees and even an occasional building down its swollen banks. Days like today, families, joggers and bird-watchers fill the trails and water ways with the sounds of frogs, dogs and people laughing.
It was a great day not unlike many winter afternoons in Southern California.
