March 13, 2017: Since I started Gem City Images way back in 2007, the photos posted here have been (almost) exclusively of Monrovia. All my other photos have been posted to various social media sites like Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.

While that seemed like a good idea, in reality it led to a lack of consistency that was frustrating for me and made it hard to follow along with the latest photos.

So, starting now, Gem City Images will no longer be exclusively Monrovia. If you still want to see Monrovia only, you can always click the "Monrovia" label on the right side but hopefully you'll follow along for the whole experience.

Even though Gem City Images refers to Monrovia, I decided to keep that as the blog name. No matter where I go, The Gem City is where it all started.

Trash receptacle and drinking fountain.  Located at the old fire station across from the start of the trail.


ATV's ready to take attendees on a tour of the new trail.  NOTE: Personal ATV's will not be allowed on the trail.  Only those used by the park rangers.


ATV returns from a trip on the new trail.



A winding section of the new trail.


One of 2 new ATV's that the park rangers will use to patrol and work in the new Preserve.  Much more economical and much better suited to the terrain than the huge pickup truck.
