Looking at the sunset in the side mirror of the Ranger’s Truck.
Ranger Theresa and I finally hit the trails yesterday. We waited until it was a bit cooler which allowed me to get some really neat sunsets pictures.
We headed out on Halls Valley Trail. At the beginning there is quite a bit of shade from the oak trees. As pretty as this looks, you wouldn’t want to go tiptoeing through there or pick any. It’s Poison Oak!!! It not only grows like bush, but as a vine, It is everywhere.
Views of and around the cabin site. There is a spring nearby, so they had running water.
The sun is beginning to set.
In my hand is a piece of chert. It is a piece of rock that the Indians mined to make arrowheads. The outcrop of rock on the left is one such rock.
Below are some of the sunset. The cloud in the second two reminded me of the surf on the ocean.
As the sun continued to set it left some beautifully lighted hills.
When people ask me how big the park is, I tell them that if they see the power lines to the east and to the west, that is the area between those two lines that is how big the park is. It’s just a visual for them, but the park is 11,000 acres.
I really enjoyed going out on the trails. Thank you Theresa, I learned a lot that will help with advising campers as to what's out there on the trails. If you ever get a chance to visit this park, I’m sure that you will enjoy your visit.
Thanks for visiting
Susan and Angel
