Taking advantage of a nice clear morning to take a short hike through the desert along portions of the Jacob's Crosscut Trail. I parked at the first parking lot at the First Water Road turnoff and headed into the desert. Can't remember when I've seen the trails so wide and packed from all the use by those escaping the confines of the COVID isolation. Lately, I've been bypassing this trail system due to the crowds but this morning was kinda cool and must have kept the numbers down.

There's room for hiking the trails in parts of the desert that escaped the fires, but my journey this morning toured both the burnt and unburnt areas. The wildlife has been avoiding the burnt areas and inhabiting these unburnt areas, but this morning, all that was spotted was a rabbit and numerous birds. I only encountered four hikers this morning but more were filtering in and the large parking lot at the Crosscut Trailhead was quickly filling up with horse trailers.

Nice to get out for a walk but it's back to isolation again.... ](*,)
