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.
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.
