Only had a short time available this morning -- this week, in fact -- so Mormon Trail was the one: gets up to the "backcountry" quickly. The air couldn't have been clearer, so everything looked great up to the north. Besides Hidden Valley, which is always nice, the highlight of the hike was a family of quail just before reaching National -- two adults and about a dozen TINY babies following the adults. I tried to get the camera out quickly, but they disappeared into the brush before I could get it. Really cute, though! So I had to be content with a wildlife picture at the very end of the hike, next to the parking lot: a gecko that was out in the sun doing push-ups (and so well-camouflaged that you can hardly see him in the picture).
