Hikers to the top of the Runyon trail are now diverted around the property line of the Mississippi Riverboat casino masquerading as a house on Solar Drive. (AKA the Pink Elephant, the Wedding Cake, the Big Pile) Structurally dubious stairs have been cobbled together out of unpainted, non-pressure treated lumber, and spiked on 4×4’s directly into an eroding hillside. Giles created his own workaround to the new arrangement, his back kicks sending little babbling brooks of gravel rolling down toward the fire road. I assume all this to be temporary. Negotiations with the city are…ongoing?
