April 22, 2020 - Wednesday - Since today is the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day, we visited the Herngt 'Aki' Preserve located in Redlands, CA.  Trails throughout this preserve have been used for hundreds of years by regional Native Americans, and since the mid-1800s, by Spanish, Mexican, and Anglo ranchers and travelers.  This 341-acre site was acquired by the City of Redlands between 2012 and 2015 and it was named by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.  According to local stories, the Indians' called the area Herngt 'Aki', which means Rattlesnake House, to acknowledge the presence of a significant population of rattlesnakes in the area.

During our 1.5 mile hike, we only saw three other people out hiking.

Earth Day, fifty years later, made for a nice adventure.
