Quick So Cal dog trip

September 27, 2010

I need a bunch of miles to keep my status with United so I booked a quick trip to LA 10/4-10/6. I’m going to Santa Cruz island on 10/5 and hope the Gray Foxes at the campground put in an appearance, then run up to Carrizo Plain NM and hope a Kit Fox does the same. Getting another look at the K-rats there, and maybe a Southern Grasshopper Mouse or something, would be a plus.

I’d welcome some company if anyone is in the area.
