FITO - Flash In Trash Out

Whoo Hoo! I finally got a CITO Icon!

So, today was the day of the Flash Mob/CITO. Drove up with Trekrr first thing to the Labyrinth in Rancho San Rafael where everyone met up in their silly hats. The original idea was to walk the labyrinth, but once it was discovered that the path was placed in memory of victims of domestic violence, that idea was stopped. So, we just chatted for 15 minutes and got a good picture out of it.

Afterwards, it was time to introduce ourselves to the Ranger and find our area of trail maintenance. I ended up at the end of the line so we worked the beginning of the trail, clearing weeds, thorny bushes, rocks, and overgrown tree branches. I do say our section looked the best. ;-)

One of the cool things discovered was that while Green Jack was ready to hack a limb, a little yellow Bush Tit flew out and he nest - WITH EGGS - was discovered. The limb was quickly delared off limits and everyone came to look at the brave little bird who flew back and sat so still on her nest we really had to look to see her.

All in all a very fun day!
