March 25 with Hiking Club in Santa Anita Canyon

We started early, so it's cool and shady
Some of the weekend cabins in the canyon. These are all walk-in
50' Sturtevant Falls
A lot of flowers in bloom right now
Five miles in, at Sturtevant's Camp. When this enormous old tree fell in the camp a few years ago, they carved a bench from this one section, and counted 800 annular rings.
Periwinkle was brought in early by cabin builders, so it's everywhere in the canyon now. It keeps the poison oak down, and it's pretty, so it's okay.
