Tar Creek Daytrip, 03/28

12/10/13: The US Forest Service will be enforcing access restrictions to Tar Creek soon. TC is part of the Condor Sanctuary established as critical habitat to this endangered bird and other wildlife. Epic numbers of visitors, and the trash and graffiti they have left behind, has led to the acknowledgment by the Forest Service that access must be curtailed and enforced. For more information on the impending action visit: Tar Creek Closure.

Zero and I went down to "The Land of the Lost" swimming holes today. The weather was absolutely perfect for swimming in the chilly pools. Sunny, clear, and in the 80's. A couple of unusual occurences occured: we got buzzed by the Ventura County Sheriff's SAR chopper, and we stumbled upon an enormous rattlesnake (see pics). After that it was the usual hike and lazy day at the holes. I was just so damn nice to have a day entirely to myself, with no responsibilities or commitments. This was the way I chose to spend that time.
