As pretty as any of these pictures are, Jessica Robbin turns out not to be the best girl to take into nature. She fears the wilderness, specifically, bugs and anything creepy-crawly. Her frightened look is completely authentic. And it was not due to the fact that I had just met her an hour before getting her somewhere relatively secluded. Jessica seemed to think it was hot when I joked about decapitating her and doing horrible things to her body. Anyways, she survived and lived to tell the tale of the harsh conditions at the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Area. Afterwards, we went to Costco for a hot dog.
