La Honda pool always a splash
Neighborhood kids dive and swim in the lap lane at the La Honda pool on a sunny Wednesday afternoon.

On sunny summer afternoons, there is a particular backcountry watering hole in La Honda that attracts children, adults and teens alike. It even draws attention from local wildlife.

'The other day there was a mama deer up there with her fawns,' said La Honda Pool Lifeguard Supervisor Carole Williams, pointing to a grassy slope just outside the iron gate that encircles the public pool, while a lone hawk circled above. 'We always joke, like, '€˜Cue the deer!' because they like to stop by.'
