The road into the area.
The start of the trail. Basically you follow a creek bed and scramble up rocks.
Husband and I have always been curious enough about where paths lead to park the car and get out and walk. However, this is my first time carrying a pack. I really want to do a backpacking adventure so I need to practice. My pack weighed 12 lbs, it's a start. I also am clueless about how to attach my new walking poles, hoping to figure that out.
We saw butterflies, but none waited for a photo, and wild flowers.
The area looks a lot like Utah. But is closer to home.
This is the view from the top. I really learned how to use my poles getting up here.
We followed a different branch of the creek back to the car and I had to figure out how to get down from the top of this big rock. Dennis found a way down and then reached above his head to help me down. Scary!
