Box Camp Trail

dateline March 24

As the valley continues to heat up, this week we explored the higher elevations. I had not hiked the Box Camp Trail before. I have to admit, “dramatic views” is very apt. It was a pretty short day for us, as we didn’t go too far down the trail which begins to descend more rapidly after a nice walk along a ridge – meaning that we’d have a steeper climb. For this time of year it was just right, somewhat exposed with flowing water in the creek, manzanita just coming into flower, and fine views across the valley.
