These feeding deer didn't bother to run away as I approached through the late afternoon shadow near Rodeo Beach.
These crows didn't see any reason to fly away from a lumbering human either.
I wasn't expecting to find evidence of the stimulus on the trail, but I'm grateful for it anywhere it turns up. The boggy patches I've been dodging around for five years had been filled in a little further up this dirt road. Good. Guess they needed better conditions to get in their tree trimming equipment.
Aside from a few hikers and the "recovery" workers, here's what probably benefits most from the reduced fire danger in cleared parts of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. This new house with a sod roof on the park boundary looks out across a magnificent vista of public land.
