I am writing to you in anticipation that you will spread the word around and that this thief may be found...but at least that hikers be aware of the continual frustration in urban interface hiking:
I hiked in Rubio Canyon [Sunday] looking for a trailcam location. I left the camera & my pack (heavy) cabled to a tree and covered with leaves while I hiked farther up canyon. I took everything of value out of the pack, but forgot my Olympus point-and-shoot was in a small side pocket. Returned to find the pack moved, all zippers open, and realized later the camera was gone. I also noticed the tape over the motion sensor on the trailcam had been moved, and out of curiosity, checked to see what the cam captured.
Stupid me for forgetting about the camera - but what the hell??? This is not some punk kid, this is an adult....with reading glasses....hiking....
So please - if you recognize this person, who was in Rubio near the Pavilion today around 11am, LET ME KNOW.
