It’s Memorial Day weekend. Nobody is allowed up into the mountains because of the ongoing virus silliness. Sunday and Monday are supposed to be rainy. So I figured everybody would be out today. I was right. When I got to Aiken Canyon, which I often have to myself, at 7:00 am, there were already four cars in the lot. Two hours later when I got back to the trail head, there were probably 15. And I kept running into people on the trails, even when I took the rarely-walked trail up into the canyon itself.
Here’s some of what I saw.
