    Prescribed Burns at Wilder and UCSC

    Saw this in the MBOSC email letter and dug up this article from UCSC:

    https://news.ucsc.edu/2017/11/prescribed-burns.html

    Sounds like they're asking people to avoid the area for the next couple weeks assuming the burns go ahead as planned.

    Had to adjust plans yesterday because of this, they had the the area blocked off with caution tape and personnel on hand to keep folks from heading north of sweetness, some smell of smoke in the air but not bad

    Good seeing you too Mr. Francis. That was indeed my amigo Tone - prior to trying to shoulder tackle a Tan Oak. Not surprisingly the Oak won. Sure felt like the perfect fall day, didn't it?

    FWIW Henry W Coe SP is planning a burn next week; about 90 acres near the HQ. I'll start a separate thread when I hear for sure when they'll have it. Won't impact MTB'ing much anyway.

    It was perfect but more perfection is right around the corner. I almost fell twice, trusting the improving soil too much.

    today was a little slicker out in Nisene.

    Good times showing a dude from Holland around the ST. He couldn't believe the loamy goodness under the redwoods!
