@Mountain_Rat Store bought citrus has no taste compared to fruit you pick directly from your tree. Can't wait till my blood orange, pink grapefruit, and tangelos are ready for picking.

Bluff Spring trail from Peralta TH is open only to the Terrapin Trail junction, then Terrapin to the Dutchman is also open. Hiking Bluff Spring to the Dutchman junction at Crystal Spring gets you into the closed area.

I have a 2000 Nissan Frontier. Great truck, only lacking 4WD. So good a vehicle that in my search for a 4WD I haven't found anything "used" better than it so I keep what I have.
