Trip Report/Photos

It was kind of surprising how empty the trails were on such a lovely weekend. We were just 50 miles outside of a big city, but apart from a few other intrepid backpackers, we had the trails (and swimming holes!) all to ourselves. The weather was perfect, the wildflowers were blooming, the songbirds were singing, the creeks were flowing, and the trails were clear. Our timing couldn't have been better, and we enjoyed tranquil, cool nights under the stars and a waning moon.
