This past year has been SPECTACULAR in so many ways! When I think about all the events that have taken place in my life - whether good or bad - they have always put me on the right path and in the end I am always and forever grateful for all the things I have done or experienced. Events in our lives makes us stronger - they improve us. When I am at my lowest I know there is goodness on the other side of it all and when I am at my best I thank the heavens and remind myself that to receive is to give. There is a poem by Robert Frost that many of us may know called THE ROAD NOT TAKEN. I remember when I was 20, my sister, Jeanne, and I sat on the beach and memorized this poem together. When life kicks you or embraces you - remember this poem and be grateful for who you are!!!

What is a sag pond?
The San Andreas Fault is right out our back door! Literally! And there is great evidence of this as we walk the trails. One example is a Sag Pond. This particular Sag Pond is along our Hillside Loop Trail hike. This is a very common feature of the San Andreas Fault zone.
Sag Ponds are formed in the low spots between the ridges and/or when stream drainage is offset and blocked by horizontal movement within the fault zone. The water does not drain from the sag ponds because the rocks in the fault zone have been ground to a fine clay from the "rubbing" of the Earth's movement and are thus impermeable. Water collects and wa-la you have a pond.
