'To be naked is to be vulnerable'
Flashback to a fire and a freehike in California
LOS ANGELES — It is still too cool for freehiking here, especially in the mountains. May grey has transitioned to June gloom. This used to be the natural way of things, but in the last several years, spring abruptly ended at the end of April. So this is a hike from 2021. Another hike I did that year in a nearby area is here.
