Hike 2016.036 -- Mel Canyon, Angeles National Forest, CA
Wound up here, near the corner of Melcanyon Road and Brookridge Road, in Duarte. It's the next canyon west from Fish Canyon.
during my first 100 hike year, but it had been a while since my last visit.
(For some reason, some of the shots I posted on that hike aren't displaying on my computer. I will have to see about fixing that, later.)
The big change since my previous visits was that this entire area had burned, just about a month before my visit. That was the "Fish Fire." It burned right down to the neighborhoods of Duarte. In some cases, even the trees right across the driveway from a home had burned, but the homes appeared undamaged.
A write-up of that hike is here. A picture of White Saddle was here.
Still very far behind in my hike blogging, but at least I managed to catch up some on my links, recently. Should be having some new hikes to thing about this weekend, too.
