our 9th day we drove to Potters Pond in the mountains en did the Big Hollow trail and the Water Hollow trail.
There were several cars with spectators in the parking lot. A helicopter fetched water from the Huntington Reservoir to extinguish a forest fire that had been raging since July 23 (the Mammoth Fire). A smiling spokeswoman for the fire brigade gave us an explanation. Then we looked at the sign about the mammoth that was found here in 1988.
Thanks and cheers!
