Here are a few pics from our stay at this very pretty desert park.
|We were greeted with lush desert plants under brilliant blue sky just steps |
from our camp site upon our arrival.
|Hiking the Wind Cave trail on a cloudy Saturday morning. |
The cave is the slim black horizontal slit near the top right of the hill.
|The trail makes its way up the boulder strewn hillside to the yellow volcanic tuff layer, |
highlighted with bright green lichen.
|A small portion of the wind cave...the remainder was full of other people! Being so close to a major city,|
this park gets major use on the weekends.
|This beautiful hawk was watching the crazy people hiking to the cave.|
|Even under cloudy skies the cholla seem to glow.|
|Sunsets have been spectacular here!|
