Not the most exciting place. Lots of cows, steers, calves and maybe a couple bulls. And especially pies of all sizes and shapes. But it sure was a lot cooler than here in the valley. The sinkholes are pretty big, only saw two of them. Parked just off Hwy 260. Didn't find the trail on the way in so we wandered around a bit looking. Saw several deer before the gate.

The gate was a bit further than 1/2 mile. There is a Y before the gate, stay to the left.

Since it was supposed to be 117 in the valley today I decided to get out of the heat. This hike was on the list of new descriptions so I decided it was a worth a try. I got to see some nice flowers and the burnout area from the Rodeo Chediski fire which had some small trees and other things growing in it. I hiked around the fire roads for a bit till the lightning from the afternoon thunderstorms got closer and I decided being in an open meadow was not a good idea......
