As time has allowed over the past few years (which is to say, almost never), and starting with a brief background I posted about Pine Mountain Lodge, I’ve been slowly pulling together some research that eventually I’ll release as the Footprints Project. Progress has been painfully slow, with real life and all sorts of other similarly silly things constantly impeding momentum.
However, as a very happy sidenote-cum-anchor to the PML section of the Footprints Project, plant systematist and paleobotanist Dr John M. Miller was kind enough to share with me a series of photos of Pine Mountain Lodge taken during his time exploring the southern Los Padres as a Boy Scout in the late 1960s. So whilst real-world obligations beset us on all sides, take a moment to soak up some great imagery of the old lodge site. Then you may go about your business.
