    Cameras at Mission Trails

    There are more "wildlife" cameras at Mission Trails.
    1st one is at the Grasslands river crossing.
    2nd one is on Spring Canyon, just south of Hw. 52.

    Once sufficient traffic is documented by those cameras, you can look forward to armed badged thugs showing up in the very near future. They're there to protect you.....from yourself!

    Really? I'll need to look a little closer on my next ride. I was out there this morning and didn't notice them. I did see BSC Joyce and she gave me a pleasant "hello."

    Wondering about these cameras also. Noticed the river crossing camera about 2 weeks ago. Have not seen the other one. My first thought though was that there are probably more...smile

    I'm going to ride right over there wearing nothing but a tangerine Speedo and do a little erotic grinder dance, that should fix them.

    Making jokes about these cameras is all well and good, but for me there is an aspect of this that is deeply disturbing.
    One of the main reasons I choose to go to a preserve to ride the trails, instead of ride on paved roads, is that I want some solitude. Not a LOT of solitude, but a little, just so my mind can re-boot out in nature and I can feel, for a little while, like I'm really free from the everyday madness of modern living.
    Now, it turns out that my picture is being snapped by a game camera, for the sake of a graduate students' "wildlife study". It really does kinda ruin the feeling.

    .

    making a g-map or g-earth file with the locations is easy and a solution for anyone who wants to avoid the cameras.

    post lat/long of the cameras and I'm sure a map/file will be created and grow.

    As a mountain bike rider in San Diego, I really AM beginning to feel like one of the "New Insurgents"!

    "Nature"? Mission Trails? That's a good one. Granted, it isn't paved but MT is hardly what I would define as "nature". I realize for some unlucky souls it's the closest thing you have but that place is a wasteland as far as MTB areas is concerned. I think I've seen greener areas in Yuma.

    What would be your definition of "nature", then? You are, of course aware that within "nature", there is a broad spectrum of habitats, right?
    Coastal San Diego happens to be within the chaparral variety of habitats.

    I'm guessing that you were thinking in terms of whether an area is 'pristine', or untouched by human activity. That would be wilderness. Last I heard, they don't want bicycles in wilderness areas at all...

    K2's comment is relevant: it's not like we're riding in untouched portions of the Alaskan wilderness. I get your point, but the degree to which local "environmentalists" want to restrict MTB access should be balanced and informed by the conditions of the areas under consideration. A great example is the Tunnels debate, where several miles of 1-2 foot wide singletrack is at issue, when developers get local government pass to disfigure and decimate 100's of acres of land without issue.

    No, actually you missed it completely . . . his complaint was that his nature mellow was being harshed by the presence of cameras. And K2 was being a nozzle by quibbling about the definition of "nature."
