Santa Ysabel West (6 photos)

After a couple of hikes at Santa Ysabel Open Space Preserve East, it was time to also check out the separate “West” part, accessible from Highway 78 about 1.5 miles west of Santa Ysabel.

I went in the late afternoon, thinking about long shadows and/or a sunset because it was a relatively clear day; the trailhead/staging area is gated however and the gates are closed at sunset – since I didn’t want to get my car locked in, sunset while in the preserve was obviously not an option. :)
