A group of early morning hikers rescued another hiker who had fallen off Sam Merrill Trail in Altadena Friday, using a tow strap from their vehicle.
The Altadena Mountain Rescue Team (AMRT) received a call at about 6 a.m. about the hiker, who had fallen about 100 feet down the steep hillside.
“The hiker was headed up the trail in the predawn darkness with a powerful flashlight when he saw a pair of eyes in front of him on the trail,” the AMRT said on their Facebook page. “He immediately stopped and took just one step backwards and fell approximately 100 feet down the steep hillside.
The person who called said he was hiking down the trail with his dog when he paused to let another hiker pass. As he did so, he observed the light from the powerful flashlight suddenly disappear down off the trail.
Uninjured except for a few scratches, the victim was able to climb up but unable to continue as the last 15 feet were entirely too steep,Read More »

McGinty’s Gallery at the End of the World in Altadena Offers Friday “Doubleheader,” Art Exhibit and Film Festival
McGinty’s Gallery at the End of the World in Altadena will be opening a new exhibit, “Anatomy of a Group Show,” with a reception coinciding with the second Annual Altadena Invitational Film Festival and Community Social on Friday, August 3, from 5 to 10 p.m.
“Anatomy of a Group Show” features 35 local creative and occasionally maverick artists. One of them, Altadena resident Judith Bowman, feels lucky to have allowed her former hobbies – illustrations, caricatures, and collages – to blossom after her retirement from the stress of deadlines, grant submissions and nonprofit drama. Her work is reflective of the modern political landscape.
Other artists in the exhibit, which runs through September 29, include Kate Alkarni, Paul August Bruins Slot, Susan Braig, Elizabeth Butterfield, Ashoka Chhabra, Melanie Maria Ciccone, Patricia Cunliffe, Pascaline Doucin-Dahlke, Linley Eathorne, Joe Feinblatt, Pepi Feinblatt, Johnny Fox, Michael Haasis, Deb Halberstadt, Rod Holcomb, Lisa Houpt, Cammie Jones, Ildiko Laszlo, Alix McKenna, Amelia Medina, Chris Moore, Robert Moore, Gifford Myers,Read More »
