Day 29

Today was about friendship - old and new - shared along a spectacular 8ish mile loop trail. These are just some snapshots of my day, nothing fancy. Perfect January weather. Wonderful people. Breath-taking views from fire charred landscape to 'lush' canyons full of Parry Nolinas. We were also treated to some remnants of the mining culture that flourished here in the late 1800's/early 1900's.  Nothing beats a Sunday afternoon, trekking along a dusty trail with kindred spirits....

This is kind of like "Where's Waldo?" but with hikers. Can you see them? The trail continues to the far right. Gives perspective to the grandness of scale, no?  (Copyright 2012 Diana Shay Diehl)

Lost Horse Mine Loop - the fire charred portion is rather moonscape-like, even after over 10 years since the fires.
