Pacific Southwest Hike

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Kitty and I went for a hike out at the end of Pico Canyon Road near Valencia on Saturday.  Hydra and I drove out that way a bit a couple of weeks ago, but took a turn before coming to the parkland at the end of the road, which is the site of the remnants of Mentryville, CA.

What a wonderful surprise.  We hiked a live oak sheltered trail along a creek bed in drizzly weather that threatened but never quite morphed into full fledged rain.   We traced deer track along and back and forth across the trail and actually saw a pair of deer at one point.

Our shoes got muddy, but it was worth it to feel like we were transported to the Pacific Northwest for a couple of hours.
