Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on May 8, 2018 by gerilewis001

Welley well well! Back in the good old days, Vermont Drop aka The Funnel was a tribe gathering place for the initiated and soon to be.

Since I am back in Los Angeles, CA I decided to stop on by for a run or two. The Funnel a nondescript concrete drainage ditch in the flats of L.A County is nothing more than a place to dump garbage and smoke met. However  for many yet for skateboarders back in the seventies it was a destination to get an adrenaline high that has lasted me the better part of 50 years, It always nice to go home.https://youtu.be/bbP9n_oIxNo

Cebolla Mesa.Carson National Forest New Mexico, USA

Standing on the rim of the Rio Grande gorge inhaling and exhaling the mixture of Sage , Pinion Pine and Juniper as several ravens heckle me, I notice a heard of Big Horn sheep just a stones throw away. Looking into the gorge a few hawks or eagles scout out their prey.

Just a typical early morning out on the Cebolla Mesa. The hike down to Rio Grande is arduous. The trail is slippery with alluvial rocks and debris. The accent is twice the effort as the rise in elevation is quite staggering. Yet the strenuous physical exertion is well worth the effort. The area is majestic!  My assignment for the day was to clean up an abandoned camp site, investigate a stump fire. I was allowed to burn most of the abandoned camp as it was not worth the effort to back out.  The Cebolla Mesa is quite remote and all the safety essentials and precautions are necessary to have a safe outing. The weather changes on the turn of a dime as vicious thunder storms and severe lightning and flash flooding are normal occurences. By the way Cebolla Mesa is onion table in the Spanish language. I have not found and wild onions yet however
