It took us 6 hours up and back, five people have fallen to their death in the past 10 years but if you go slow and steady it’s a piece of “well …. be careful” . A wonderful hike …

A local told us of a great hike that tourist rarely get to and that I could get a good shot from behind Cathedral Rock. Once there I sit in the shade and take this shot.

This is the spot to “Zin-out” because next to me is a bag of pot and a pipe, I look around and no one is in sight, no one … “Hmmm”, I take a picture of it, pick it up, smell it. “Hmmm”, I look around again, not a soul except my partner Ms. E. Well… I put it back ;) where I found it, maybe the next hiker will enjoy it…Pot on trail

We came across a mother bear and her three cubs raiding a dumpster. Do not get out of the car or run from the bear if you encounter them…
