This podcast is about a winter day hike to visit the Devil’s Punchbowl and the scenic sights from the Devil’s Chair, a peninsula of rock overlooking the Devil’s Punchbowl, a mass of twisted rocks near the San Andreas Fault Zone.  In this edition I led a group of 8 energetic hikers from the visitor’s center over the Burkhart Trail to the Devil’s Punchbowl Trail.  We crossed over a couple of sparkling icy creeks and met a friendly hiker who took time to chat with us on the trail.

Also in this episode I talk about the history of the Devil’s Punchbowl County Park, the San Andreas Fault and throw in a little bit of music, movie clips and informational audio about the region.

Check out the photos, click on the group photo.

I also posted a short video of the hike on You Tube

    Very nice presentation…a lot of effort both on the trail and on the ‘page.’ Will be back to look at more. Wish I could join you.
