had planned to hike Gateway with Kathy on Monday but I'm a "buttercup" and wanted to rest my knee a day. With the temps so nice though, I must get out so I decided a nice 4 mile hike after work would do the trick. And I was hoping for lots of blooming brittle bush. I don't think I've hiked this particular lasso cclockwise so thought I would do that today:
Lost Dog Trail Access to Lost Dog to Ringtail to Old Jeep to Lost Dog.

Lots of elderly people out and about. A few bike riders, a couple horseback riders (I think one of the horses was new to the city trail as he kept a good eye on me when I was behind; I tried to stay in his peripheral vision cuz I could see he was having issues) and a few other hikers were out as well. There was brittlebush blooming finally as I came up the south side of the Ringtail trail and some more for the rest of the way except not as much on Lost Dog. There were a few hedgehogs blooming and lots of creosote and some chuparosa.

The trail is in good shape altho there were two areas on a couple of the hills that it looks like they had to fill in some rock. But how nice was it to hike on a real trail after two weekends of cross country? VERY nice.

PS I did stop for short moments to take pics with Kemosabe and a couple times had to reset Route Manager.

For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.
