Yes, I think so.  I was out in Palmdale and Valyermo on Sunday, and
they were out doing the same thing there as well.  As a matter of fact, I
noticed it in other areas, too: 1/ in the eastern part of the L A
metropolitan area, 2/ in the upper part of Big Tujunga Canyon (in Angeles
National Forest), 3/ in Santa Clarita Valley, and 4/ in Coachella Valley,
all in the last two weeks or so.
