Saw my first wild burro! Some along the road to trail head, five along the trail. Would not have seen them if one had not brayed at us. Judy, Java and I did this counter clockwise...going out 3.5 miles then returning. We both liked this hike as lots of little ups, downs and around. Someone put a lot of time into cairns, but we needed them in some spots. No one else on the trail on this Thursday morning.
