Sometime in the future I may visit all the areas involved in that manhunt. It turns out one of them, Robber's Roost in Anaheim Hills, CA, I have been on before a few times, but it recently became restricted to the public since some idiots decided to leave their trash and graffitti there.
Not too far into the hike I came across this tree. I just wonder how far this tree goes down under the ground.
I had been here a few years before this, but do not recall this tree being like this. About three years ago there was a fire in this area that kept the public out for about a year. My guess is that a lot of sediments have built up around here.
There is very little trail on this one. Basically, I walked beside the stream, crossed over it at times, crossed over boulders, and bushwacked when I had to. In the picture below this is right before the area of hiking starts to get a little more compact. It is a lot more covered by trees and the canyon walls. The stream is not very big, but here is looks really small.
The stream does get bigger and moves a lot faster. After hiking a while I moved past these rocks to see something that blended in down below. It looked like a small piece of mud.
Wait a second, let me take a closer look!
I will continue this in the next blog or two. I have the video done for the main hike, but what I decided to do is just show what I am calling the "preview" video at this point. This is footage I wanted to include on the main video, but decided against it since it slows the pace of the video down and makes it a little too long. It shows the tree and some alternative footage, so take it for what it is:
