Spot camped at Guffy in the San Gabriel mountains on July 4th weekend. There were only 5 other campsites occupied, which is unusual for a long weekend at a place where on a clear day Catalina Island can be seen 45 miles to the West and the Tehachapi’s stand out over the Mojave desert to the North. Of course, the wind does blow up there about supper time.
Spot got into a row with a Puma in the wee hours of Sunday and eventually led one hungry and very angry cat deep into the canyon, down near Fish Camp. Her new friends, concerned as they were, would have to wait for another campfire to here Spot’s tail of her run to Fish Camp. Pork chops, fried potatoes n’ broccoli and corn bread were on deck. Good thing we brought a WindTamer . Cooking in the wind can be a challenge without one.
