On the first two hikes at Santa Ysabel Open Space Preserve East, we did not reach or finish the loop section of the trail up at Kanaka Flats. It was getting late in May already and Spring would be over in a couple of weeks – conditions wouldn’t get any better and I didn’t want to wait for next year’s Spring, so only two days after the visit with our friends, I went back to take that hike off my bucket list. :-)
It was a nice and mostly overcast day with much more pleasant temperatures, and beautiful light as the sunlight occasionally broke through the clouds. What an incredible difference from Saturday! This was a thoroughly enjoyable hike, and on the way home as I was driving down towards Santa Ysabel Valley from Julian, I was treated with a bonus light-show (last photo).subscribe via email (the subscription form opens in a new browser window/tab). It's easy as pie! :-)
