Each day of our region’s short and mild winter is a little treasure to be invested for maximum return. A good place to invest it is in the Rock Spring Loop Trail on the Mojave National Preserve. It’s a short hike packed with natural and historic interest. You will see American Indian petroglyphs, the site of a 19th century Army post built to protect the famous old Mojave Road, a former mill site, a charming stone house with its own interesting history and the spring itself — the likely reason all the historic features are here.
Here are the high league scores for the past two weeks.

Fall Race 1
The appropriately named Grand Canyon can be enjoyed from at least two different perspectives. The South Rim is more popular and open all year. The North Rim is closed in winter, but the very best time to visit there is upon us — September and early October, before most North Rim services shut down about mid-October because of early snows. In that window, weather will usually be clear, with a slight chill in the air.
