Is nothing sacred?
Graffiti “artists” tagged trailheads at two of the front country’s most popular pathways—Rattlesnake and Cold Spring.
However, just a quarter-mile hike up Rattlesnake Canyon, my faith in humanity was restored. There, at a bend in the trail, I met Jim Bradburn, a volunteer with the Santa Barbara Trails Council. He was spending his day with pick and shovel maintaining the Rattlesnake Canyon Trail.
What a guy.
And a lesson for us all. Just as nature has infinite variety and expression, so does human nature.
