Fall in southern California signals the beginning to the desert off-road season. This time of year is also accompanied by Santa Anna winds and wildfires. Added to the offerings this year are strong winds, wildfires, and rolling blackouts throughout the state. As experienced the past couple of years, wildfires take a toll on human lives, homes, and trails. As the winds, fires and smoke subsides, help your friends and neighbors rebuild their lives. And, help the land managers
rebuild your trails.
The Cal4Wheel website is now hosting a fairly comprehensive Glossary of Landuse and Environmental
Terms. (https://cal4wheel.com/access-advocacy/glossary). I have been working on
this glossary for the past 15 years by compiling terms and definitions from a variety of landuse
documents. It is now in a format that is relatively easy to update with new terms and is a good
fit for the Cal4Wheel Access Advocacy section of the website. If you encounter any terms you
do not understand, send me a note and I will get it added to the glossary.
