This place totally ROCKS! I know that's a cop out of a description, but it's hard to find the right words for it. This hike has everything except pain. There is only one long stretch of steady elevation gain, but it was almost completely shaded by the pine trees. Heart of Rocks is something out of this world! Walking amongst those impossible rock formations was just spiritual and we had the whole area to ourselves. I think I gasped "Wow!" about a thousand times that day.


I hardly noticed that we hiked 10 miles because there was something new and fantastic around every turn. I tripped 10 times for looking everywhere else but where my feet were going. As Angela said in her first trip log, pictures really don't do it justice. I realized how true that is within the first 5 minutes, so I didn't mind too much that my camera broke before we even boarded the shuttlebus. :( I thought that disaster would bum me out a whole lot more than it actually did. But, I must admit, it was nice to be free of that hanging albatross for a change and just be a kid out there. The photos I posted here I took with her camera.


Much credit is due to those who created that trail system, as it was obviously designed with great love and respect for nature, and to the Park Service who maintains this magical place in such a pristine state. : app : Everything was in excellent working order and trash was nowhere to be seen. In two days of exploring, I didn't see so much as a gum wrapper. And, thanks to Angela for driving me all the way out there to show me this fantastic place!
:thanx:
