Running into a mother bear and her cub last week did not stop Rochelle Votaw from going back out to do what she loves. Votaw, along with friends from Huntington Beach hiked Sawmill and Mt. Pinos on the Kern and Ventura County Lines in the Los Padres National Forest. Wearing face coverings and practicing social distancing they hiked a total of 7.7 miles and 1500 ft.
