Before you leave, please fill out Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Search and Rescue – Hiking Plan sheet and provide to a loved one to hold onto just in case something happens to a member of your hiking/camping expedition. You can download the form by visiting:

We don’t want high-speed rail to be routed through the SCV anyplace. The Formerly Great State of California still shows it as coming through Acton, Agua Dulce and Sand Canyon, bisecting the entire length of historic Soledad Canyon. At least now, on the proposal’s map, there is a bright orange swath that shows how a tunnel could be drilled through mountains south of Palmdale in a nearly straight line to Burbank. Good solution. The best solution is not to build it at all. Anyplace. Ever. Period.
