Rising moon and sunset over Fox Ridge
In reply to 19andrew47, 11 months ago

I call this place Fox Ridge for the fox that show up here at sunset. My wife and I hiked up here on Sunday and saw two deer near the top, which is rare for this 4200 foot high ridge, a mile or two from any surface water. Before the Station Fire of 2009 there was a fiberglass cistern just over the rise that saved water for the animals to drink. That water attracted deer and fox. We're starting to see them return again this year. I want to build another watering trough.

The low grey box in the middle is a concrete cistern that holds 6500 gallons of water, locked up for use by the Forest Service. I told Andrew a story about this place below my photo in the Sunday Scapes thread about Strawberry Peak.

Fox Ridge

For perspective, the same place seen from the other direction a few months ago when the yucca were blooming. Concrete tank on the left and burnt tree just past it.

Fox Ridge

The same ridge looking towards the road/trail. The tank is visible here too. We like to picnic in the shade of these trees.
