Rice Canyon

26 05 2011

This week, I elected to explore a canyon that I’ve known about since I started geocaching. Some new geocaches popped up, and now I had some bread crumbs to follow.
East/Rice Junction

Right near the trail head is a horse ranch:

The old gates nearby would have some good stories to tell, I imagine, if they could:

Unfortunately, one of the caches has gotten completely blocked off by poison oak:

The spring vegetation has gotten quick thick, so I had to watch for stickers, and thistles as well.

Although it’s called sticky monkey, this flowering plant is just pretty, and poses no danger:

The trail has several creek crossings, adding to the adventure, and I look forward to a return visit to see what’s further out than I hiked this time.
