So many hikers have underestimated the hazards of Eaton Canyon near Pasadena that the Forest Service has closed sections of the upper gorge to prevent further deaths and injuries. The Huntington Park church group headed into Eaton on Sunday morning, carrying ropes and helmets, with canyoneering as its goal, and was due to return by 6 p.m. (Sunset is 4:53 p.m.) When families still hadn’t heard from the group at 9:40, they reported them missing, and authorities began searching 20 minutes later. Two hikers who became separated from the party were able to walk out on their own uninjured. After weeks of clear skies in Southern California, coastal marine layer fog has moved into canyons in the mornings and evenings. The National Weather Service expects the sun to burn away the fog by 10 a.m., allowing helicopters to continue the search from the air.
