After setting up camp, we set out to explore this trail a bit. The forest in the area had burned fairly recently, and the snags created a great silhouette against the jumbled granitic rock formations. Oaks were re-sprouting and pine seedlings were coming up everywhere. We saw tons of birds, but only 2 people - bird watchers!
Fun leisurely pre-dinner hike.
