Yes, I hike like a broken record sometimes. I had a great day taking photos, getting sun. I really pushed myself on the run up and back, but the in-between parts were all lounging. I saw the great blue "ghost" heron again...he is huge, like something out of a Native American myth. Also, for some reason I saw over 35 ground squirrels in just the span of 5 minutes. They were scampering in all directions, busy little things that they are. I felt as if I'd stumbled onto the set of Meerkat Manor. Funny. Enjoy the pics.
