We spent yesterday driving to the different trail heads so
and then climbing a thousand feet in no time and enjoying the views.
The views continued to impress and signs of wildlife were everywhere. The tread was good, although rocky in spots and we enjoyed our trip to La Mosca Canyon where
We were up and tacked up by 8 and hit the trail to cover what I thought was 15 or so miles. After a few miles we crossed a very familar looking road but we continued on thinking that Burton was many miles on down the trail. 20 miles later we knew something was wrong....indeed that familar road was where Burton was to meet us ( I had misread the map!) and we had to back track and hope he was still there. Not only was he there but he had camp all set up as usual, but Sandy realized she had lost her camera. So once again poor Megan with Sandy astride took off down the trail for the third time hopfully to find her camera! Luckily, it was only 8 or so miles back. Camp was beautiful with tall pines and some graze for the horses. You could tell many people had camped here before but this night we were the only ones (except for a few cows.)
