Wintry Weather

We had about an inch of snow in Anza that fell Christmas Eve morning. I captured it in a photo before it quickly melted around noon.

After the snow, several inches of rain fell between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, making for rather poor hiking in the area. On a recon of the trail between Nance Canyon and the Horse Canyon overlook (roughly, PCT mile 140 and 149), I noted that the rain had caused several very small landslides on the trail that I cleaned up on the spot. A long-term trouble spot for stock, with usable trail tread of six inches or less caused by sloughing DG and soft downside edge just north of the second Table Mountain Truck Trail crossing was reported to the Trail Chief for Section B.
