From a vantage point in La Cañada Flintridge, Mt. Wilson looks clear of snow, but what one can?t see is the snow that covers the north face of the peak. It is this winter blanket that has kept the Montrose Search and Rescue Team members busy the last two weekends. ?March 2 was an extremely busy day,? said Mike Leum, a longtime rescue team member. The team was first activated at noon on a call concerning a 20-year-old mountain biker with a broken leg. The cyclist was on the road near Red Box and Switzer Falls when he fell from his bike and injured his leg. The team responded at first with assistance from Los Angeles County Sheriff?

March was a busy month for the Montrose Search & Rescue Team, which responded to a total of 14 calls for assistance in local mountains, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department reported Monday.  The team responded to or assisted in nine search calls, largely for hikers gone missing or who were overdue. Members also performed five rescue missions, including saving an injured mountain biker, a cliffhanger and a horseback rider who'd gone off the side of the road.  Two rescue calls involved vehicles that had careened off parts of the Angeles Crest Highway and Little Tujunga Canyon and required extrication.

The 6th Annual International Yoga Asana Championship’s Southern California Regionals returned Saturday to the Lanterman Auditorium, drawing 26 competitors of all ages. “The purpose of these championships is to demonstrate and educate the general public as to the life-renewing benefits of yoga,” said Rose Malmberg, owner of Bikram Yoga La Cañada and host of the event. This year’s Regionals was marked by a confidence that one day Hatha Yoga—that is yoga done as exercise—will one day be an Olympic event, on par with gymnastics.

A year and a half after the Station fire laid waste to Angeles National Forest lands above La Cañada Flintridge, signs of life, including fields of wildflowers bursting with color, have risen from the once-charred ground. With the blessing of the U.S. Forest Service, mountain biker and photographer Mike Caley has enjoyed a rare view of the natural recovery of otherwise closed parts of the forest. Caley will share hundreds of photographs documenting that recovery process during a presentation Wednesday at the La Cañada Flintridge Public Library.
