Found a few blue dicks on the north side of the creek that parallels the El Escorpion trail. It's a bit early so maybe more will bloom as they really come into season. There were more in more locations last year. Still nice to see some wildflowers. The trails also have mostly dried out from the recent rains. It's a much nicer hike with everything so green.

There is some mud right now, but colors on the hike are amazing right now.

Hiked out to the Cave of Munits. The hike itself is short and easy. Nothing spectacular. If I do more of the hike up into the hills, may change my rating.
The cave offers opportunities to rock climb, as well as bouldering and scrambling opportunities. The cave is impressive, but so dirty. Broken glass and trash everywhere. This is why we can't have nice things. It definitely has a mixed energy there (the history of it's American Indian roots, mixed with it's current stoner hang out filth).
Worth checking out for sure, but I likely won't got back in the cave unless there is a Trash Free Earth cleanup party inside!

nice spot for me and my boys to go hiking not too difficult for them 9 and 7 years old
