I loved your article on the Saturday/Sunday shuttle service in the Santa Monica Mountains ["Beachgoers, Hikers Can Get on Board," March 1]. I drive from Woodland Hills to park at Paramount Ranch.

An hour later I catch the shuttle again and continue the ride to Corral Canyon, Solstice Canyon, Zuma Beach, Point Dume, Backbone Trailhead, Peter Strauss Ranch, and back to my car at Paramount Ranch. It's a relief to be traveling in this bus. It seats a passenger much higher than a car does, and the views are great.

Two annual summer events no true cineaste should miss are the Silent Society's "Silents Under the Stars" screenings at historic Paramount Ranch and the L.A. Conservancy's "Last Remaining Seats" series of classic films in classic downtown L.A. theaters each June.

The Paramount Ranch, that Old West movie set tucked into the Santa Monica Mountains, is usually the backdrop for the TV show "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman." But Sunday, the place near Agoura Hills will be a foot-stomper's paradise when the Topanga Banjo-Fiddle Contest warms up for its 38th annual festival. For those who love old-time bluegrass and folk music, it's a chance to get an earful. Apparently, a lot of people love this music.

Wagons were rumbling by and cowboys swaggered along the boardwalk when, suddenly, murmurs of anticipation rippled among the clutch of women gathered under an enormous oak: Hank the bartender and Jake the barber were about to duke it out over Teresa the schoolteacher. "This should be pretty good," said Pam Hughes. "They both want to date her." Another chapter was unfolding in the travails of Michaela Quinn, heroine of "Dr.
