hiking
1 day ago

Make sure you have a head lamp or light source. Also, it was hot, and you need to drink a lot on the way back to stay hydrated. Insects were not a problem most of the time. I went counterclockwise to normal travel. Said hi to a lot of folks. Saw snakes, couple Chipmunks and Squirrels gathering cones and seeds, not too many birds, except for the group of turkeys outside the caves. This is a truly awesome not to be missed hike, should have led with this. Go for the views especially of the rock formations around the caves with the mountain backdrop.
Virtual Treadmill video of this hike can be seen on my YouTube Channel, copy and paste link below to watch it. Thanks.
