From VC to summit, down to #100, looped back to TH via #306 and N dam.

No sooner had I found a flattish rock on the summit and bitten into a turkey sandwich than a man marched up from the steep National Trail hoisting an American flag. A large flag. We chatted for a bit. I shot several photos of him on a rock with my camera and with his. Said his name was Larry and described himself as "a flag man." He and a friend, he said, "maintain" the three American flags on peaks at Thunderbird Park. News to me. Last time I was at Thunderbird there were two. Larry said a flag now rests on the peak behind the amphitheater (Sunrise Pk?)

Since North Mountain is heavily traveled by Hispanics, I thought by parading his flag up and down the trails there, he was being confrontational. A right-wing vigilante making a statement? I asked why he was doing this. "God and country," he said, "for everybody."

Another surprisingly warm January afternoon.
