As an East Coast transplant, I love the colorful place names of the West. So you all probably know this, but here's the info I found:

"This may be Orange County's most popular family hike despite the washboarded road leading to it.

Nature was profaned here by the swear words flooding from the mouth of "Cussin' Jim" Smith or "Holy Jim" as he was renamed by tightlaced government surveyors who mapped the canyon in the early 1900s. Another bit of history marks the place: the last wild California Grizzly -- an old bear named "the honey thief" -- was killed at the mouth of Trabuco Canyon after robbing beehives here in 1907."

FawdDog: There are no more planned closures of the Arctic Circle (hwy 18). This is primarily due to the cooler weather which is not favorable for paving operations.

Ford was shooting a commercial at Bear Mountain over the weekend, not sure what was being shot on HWY 38. Sounds like an unrelated shoot Stars.... But everyone's done, for now.

I heard from a neighbor that Onyx Summit was closed sporadically yesterday because Ford was filming a commercial. Anyone hear the same thing?
