October Mountain - Halloween - Safari Time!

It’s October with mild temperatures and a wonderful time to go back to the Southern California mountains.

We took Highway 79 through the Cuyamaca Mountains and stopped at Desert View Park for a view of the valley below and desert beyond.

It’s a preview for us of our next tentative outing in the Anza-Borrego desert.

So here we are near Julian where a forest fire just three weeks ago shut down the town, including its highways both in and out.

Besides the ever-looming fire danger, we also became aware of another danger out here when we saw the sign posted on the outhouse, warning of The Plague

Walking back from the outhouse, I noticed that the turkeys are larger now...

and appear more nervous as Thanksgiving approaches…

Every afternoon gaggles of them walked by…

Then one heard something, stopped and raised its head…

He came to the trailer and hung his shingle, as the flamingos looked curiously on…

(BTW, he would normally have boots covering his feet!)

Inside the trailer, he spotted the Flamingo Hat...

and decided to switch hats…

And gave the flamingo a drink of his brew for the occasion…

It seems birds are close to his heart… as well as on his mind.

After working up an appetite, he feasted on steak and tortillas grilled on the hibachi

(We’re finding the hibachi is efficient and travels well in a bucket with charcoal).

This was followed by hair-raising ghost stories

Which seemed to have just the opposite effect on all, except for the pug, Pau Hoa…
