Lake Lagunitas Lake Lagunitas (San Rafael, CA Quadrangle)
Marin County Sheriff; 25-26 July 82
FIND 'EM!

While a search dog team was working its way up the East Fork of Lagunitas Creek, at about 1150 hrs on 26 July, Magener came out on the Rocky Ridge firebreak (V), shins bloody, and without his glasses. He was picked up by a State Park patrol vehicle. Magener said he’d taken the North Side Trail from Inspiration Point but had missed the Middle Fork firebreak.

Arriving at Rifle Camp, he realized he’d gone too far (but didn’t know he was only 200 yards from the road). He could see Lake Lagunitas below him, and decided to strike out cross-country—only to end up in a seemingly endless manzanita field. (If he’d succumbed there, he might never have been found.) He rested some during the night, then struggled out in the morning. The spry oldtimer was philosophical about his lost glasses: “The manzanita wanted them as a souvenir of my visit.”

Searchers applied some antiseptic to his shins but he refused an ambulance ride and his wife drove him home.

Maacama  
FIND 'EM!  

At 0559. a deputy responding to investigate a report of a prowler found the subject lying naked—but alive—in a ditch along Chalk Hill Road, about 2.1 miles downstream from the LKP. He had apparently followed the creek down. His clothes were not found.
