Rabbit Mountain has become my default hiking location. If I don’t have time to drive up into the mountains, then I go to the foothills to Rabbit Mountain where I can still get a leg-burner of a hike in a short period of time. This morning, I got up early so I could be on the trail by seven-thirty. I usually hike the the Eagle Wind Trail, a lovely four mile lollipop loop route that is mostly flat but includes a modest elevation gain of about 470 feet. It’s a wonderful place for an easy workout and beautiful views.

- In Lake County, the socio-economic status of a town is written all over its roads. The wealthy areas are blessed with roads as smooth as silk. The poorer areas are riddled with roads of rubble.
- A Hot Day in May
- It was the kind of weather that wilts flowers. The temperature climbed to ninety degrees and the air grew thick and soupy by mid-morning.
