So, unfortunately, this hike is not as advertised.Which, is not to say it's not a great hike. But, I'd like to set the record straight. That green, lush photo was taken absolutely, no where near this hike. This hike is a fire road in a large, exposed, dessert of a field. There were no streams, no ponds. There were a lot of vultures circling overhead. Not sure if we didn't take the right trail or something, but it was sparse trees and open brown fields for as far as the eye could see. So, wear your sunscreen!
Beautiful hike. Not so many trees.
