Re: Smuggler’s Gulch Drainage west of Hollister in the TRV

12:17 pm

Hello Friends, 
On the heels of Andrew’s email, I wanted to provide a safety note for anyone venturing into the Smuggler’s Gulch area. A colleague of mine was surveying in the general area of Smuggler’s Gulch this month and they stepped onto what looked like solid ground/trash
– and sank to their CHEST in trash/sludge/sewage. They are fine now but struggling to get out of the apparent quicksand/sludge was no easy task. So please take care and bring a buddy. 
Be well, stay safe, and good birding, Linds
