If at first you don't succeed...

Hey, Matt, I miss your NHPS saddle-bagging reports. Came across this gem this morning.

"Come on! It's rain! It ain't nuclear waste!" Laughing

And, dude, all I'm thinking about now is "Boundary Saddle." Did you make that up? It's killing me.

Yeah I made it up but... there is a boundary there or nearly so between La city and Glendale city

There is a metal post with the boundary put there many years ago by the Los Angles County Fire Warden / Forester

There are similar posts throughout the verdugos

If you don't get your Quiz score up by this semester, young man, I'm going to take away your video games for the whole summer!

Matt, it would be nice to have a list of all the NHPS saddles in SoCal. Clearly I'm missing out on most of the fun. Usually I hit a saddle and have no clue about its historical significance or unofficial name.

7 out of 10. I also missed 3, 4, and 7!

My self-esteem took a hit. No participation awards?

7/10 is respectable. You win a picture of the Brown Boys.
