Well, we were about to call this one a dud and were complaining most of the way about the awful directions in the book and the lack of trail markers. Once we found our way back to the car we came to realize that we parked in the wrong lot and started out on the wrong trail. We still covered the same amount of ground in the same amount of time as stated in the book.
We will be going back to give this one a second try now that we know where the correct trailhead is.
Cannot wait to get my new camera so that I may
zoom in on such beauty as this hawk.
This hill was really steep. We even turned around
and went back up at one point; but felt we really
wanted to be on the trail at the bottom.
This is the same hill. We started at the ridgeline
where you can see the tip of the tree.
What a beauty! Laura has eagle eyes I tell you - she spots
everything; including the hawk shown above.
Could not reach to sit inside.
Hmmm... no wonder there were no other cars.
They were all parked in the other lot.
Notice the seagull among the other birds.
This is the route we were supposed to do.
This is the route we did.
