As I headed back the rain increased. I spotted the four teens riding the foot path again. It appeared they were exploring but not riding aggressively. As I decided my next move and whether to report, ranger Christopher McGeorge drove up and introduced himself. We discussed the 311 app and problems I've described above. He asked to be included when 311 reports are filed. He told me the Oak Leaf report is not being used and may be linked back to 311 now. We agreed the new County 311 system is much better. Meanwhile, the teens beat a hasty retreat while the ranger was present. I still filed a 311 report on their activities just to keep the record straight.
The presence of rangers today was a very good sight but the tasks they face in this area is huge and ongoing. The more eyes on the area reporting when problems are encountered the better for all.
