Fall colors, trail work and birding; weather closes Lassen Peak Trail


Delaine Fragnoli

My family, including my 10-year-old, headed up to Bucks Lake for trail work with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship late last month. The turnout was good — about three-dozen locals — and we accomplished a lot. We built two turnpikes (elevated sections of trail through muddy areas) on a rerouted section of the mountain bike loop. My daughter and I made a formidable culvert-digging, wheelbarrow-pushing team. We were well rewarded with ample food and beverage throughout the day for our efforts. It’s amazing what a kid will do in exchange for an enormous chocolate muffin.

The loop, which runs from Bucks Summit to Whitehorse Campground and back, has always been a bit funky. One leg of it was hard to follow, and it deposited you on the highway to finish.

Fishing Report for 10/11/2010

Don't like the weather? 

  If you don't like the weather, just wait a while and it will change.

  Around the first of October, the temperatures were running about 90 degrees; unseasonably warm. Suddenly overnight, the skies were filled with thunder and lightning, the temperatures had dropped significantly and the wind was blowing. Now, temperatures seem to be settling somewhere near normal for this time of year.

  You may be wondering what all those changes mean for fish and we anglers who pursue them. I thought I would ask an expert.
