Hello Hikers!

Well it appears that we’re going to have to wait a bit for cooler fall temperatures, with high pressure bringing hot weather and low humidity. It looks like things should begin slowly cooling off after today though.

Unfortunately, higher temperatures and low humidity mean increased fire danger. A small fire was reported Saturday afternoon in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park. The fire was located near the Sweetwater parking area. Fortunately, the fire only grew to about eight acres, and was 75% contained as of early Sunday morning.

The San Diego Reader has a fantastic article about the San Diego River Park Foundation’s efforts to document and photograph badgers living on their preserves near the headwaters of the San Diego River in Julian.

The Union-Tribune has an article reporting that Governor Jerry Brown has recently signed a bill that will provide $2.1 million to help in the effort to prevent sewage contamination flowing from Tijuana to San Diego via the Tijuana River.

Here’s the latest outdoor and fitness deal from Amazon:

Have a good week!
