Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, I did some trail work with the “Paradise” section trail crew just north of Warner Springs along Agua Caliente creek (which was running for part of the way).
On Sunday and Monday, I did a short backpack to Live Oak Spring, about a mile off the PCT just north of Hwy 74.
I camped among the giant live oaks that give the area its name and enjoyed some quiet time.
The camp register has been seriously chewed by mice, but you can still make out the visitors for the past several months. It is odd that Jeremy reports “no deer again” since I could see deer tracks and deer scat all over the ground, as the deer take advantage of the massive number of acorns lying all over the ground.
