Orange County has a lot to offer teens brave enough to venture into its uncivilized corners.

Within Orange County's 782 square miles are more than 150,000 acres of parks, preserves and public lands. There is much to explore--from forest slopes and grasslands to jagged sea cliffs and dark canyons.

From a distance, they looked like a ragtag army on a forced hike along Coast Highway on Tuesday. They're not soldiers, said Richard Nichols, who with nine others has spent the summer hiking California's 1,100-mile coastline. "But we are on a mission," he said Tuesday as the group hiked from Corona del Mar to Crystal Cove. They began their journey three months ago at the Oregon border and plan to finish when they reach the Mexican border about Sept. 20, Nichols said.

Mike Leum, the reserve chief of search and rescue for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, has a 20-year-old daughter. So when he met with the parents of the college student who got lost while hiking in Orange County's back country, he had a promise for them. “I looked them both in the eyes and told them definitely that we were going to find her,” Leum said. “I'm glad I was able to come through on that.” On Thursday, that college student's voice secured her rescue.

You've seen them before: those everyday photographs of active people, families playing together or panoramas of the Newport Beach skyline with sailboats in the foreground. There is a real market for stock photography, those generic photos that fill many needs. When an advertising agency or calendar maker needs a particular shot, it's easier and less expensive to buy it from a stock photography agent than to go out and shoot the picture. One such agency is Photo Network in Tustin.

In the search for a college student lost while hiking in Orange County's backcountry, things were beginning to look grim. It had been four days since she went missing. Steep ravines with 10-foot-high brush hindered rescue efforts and thwarted helicopters with infrared cameras. When searchers found her companion dehydrated and exhausted, he said they'd become separated and he hadn't seen her recently. But on Thursday, Kyndall Jack's voice secured her rescue. The 18-year-old's screams from a cliff in the Trabuco Canyon area caught the attention of a search team and led to a protracted and dramatic rescue.
