There really isn't anything going on right now. Work is stressful but acceptable, i've been spending time with friends and family, the weather has been good. I have nothing to complain about really but i'm not too excited about anything at the moment either. oh well. Posted by Hello

Sycamore Canyon in the aftermath of the floods. This area used to be full of vegetation, and the further part of the creek used to flow about 50 feet to the right of where it is now. Instead of thickets of Mule Fat and a few Willows, the creek now consists of a huge gravel wash with a bit of water running down the middle. Note that this creek had no water at all in its lower reaches for the previous 3 years. It was actually flowing much stronger than ths further downstream but the batteries in my camera died. Posted by Hello

I found a better picture of the Solstice floods... This is another picture of Solstice falls (in the background) which is normally just a trickle of water. On this day it was an insane torrent Posted by Hello

I did not take this picture... i found it on a news site. This is Topanga Canyon Road in my mountain range... with a new 20' boulder buddy! Posted by Hello

Unfortunately, this picture really didn't come out. But i am including it anyway just beacuse it is one of the most incredible things i have ever seen. This is a 50 foot wall of water crashing down a cliff, basically covering sostice falls. The normal waterfall including the house sized rock that sits on top of it is totally obscured. The sound was deafening and even being this far away was kind of scary. Even being there, it wasnt even really possible to comprehend the scope of this. Posted by Hello
