Paschal Morning in the Open Space
It was a glorious, foggy Easter morning in Cheesesboro and Comado Canyons. My hike started at daybreak with not much visibility so I didn’t see any bobcats, coyotes, deer, or puma (a long shot anyway). There were just a few cotton tail rabbits that quickly scurried into the mist, and I could only imagine the grizzly bears that once thrived in these canyons before being exterminated by cattle ranchers. The cows are gone now and the native flora and fauna are making a comeback. There were coastal live oak seedings sprouting everywhere assuring there will be many more specimen live oaks like the one pictured above in the future.
