This scene started early on Sunday and last well into the afternoon. The man named Isaak/Issak decided to climb the Spanish American War Memorial statue on Dolores Street. He came down by 2:30pm. Allegedly he was high on meth.

Yea, Dwight Yoakam at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival 2014. What a treat. Loved this mans music for the longest time, but have only heard him twice, live, including today. Dwight has an authentic sound, with his own touch, make shim an artist not be ignored or dismissed.  More information on him can be seen here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dwight_Yoakam

Coyote encounter while leaving Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival 2014

True story, while leaving the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival I decided to go back to the wildlife area and look for those owls. It just so happens, I found the owls, who were fighting with the ravens, but then once again, another hiker pointed out the Coyote was staring at me.

This owl was being mobbed by Ravens

Mushy moment at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival

Leave a comment

Trubute to Warren Hellman tentSo I went to this tent, and got all mushy. You know, when you attend a festival like this for over 10 years, all the while, losing a lover, a home, pets, gobs of jobs, and a sense of well-being, you gain a tendency to appreciate the best things in life, which are music and community. And this event provides that. So in other words I socialized with people I don’t know. The tent was a tribute or memorial for Warren Helman who is the person who started and maintains the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. Thank you Warren Hellman

Went looking for that Mountain Lion that attacked a child.

Here is the original story and event.

Mountain Lion Attacks Child on Hiking Trail Near Cupertino Winery.

When I arrived at the location the whole area was blocked off, and their are search dogs in the area, so the MidPeninsula Regional Open Space Project, Fish and Wildlife, or Wildlife Management shut it down.
Reason is: the dog handlers/slash trappers, don’t want the scents confusing the search dogs. Technically it is believed that Mountain Lions, will stay near the area where the alleged attack occurred for several days. A Fish and Wildlife employee informed me that the cats in the area are already confusing the search dogs by criss-crossing the area repeatedly.

There are always signs posted informing hikers of the possibility of Mountain Lion encounters. In those areas, parents or guardians or chaperones must never let a child follow behind them. Children must always be in front of the parents or guardians.

Update: California Fish and Wildlife shot and killed the Mountain Lion on September 10 2014.

Always plenty of warning to visitors about the possibility of a Mountain Lion encounter.
