Steve owes a writeup!
Lots of agave (or yucca?) blooming along the trail
Many wasp colonies were building homes. . .in the middle of the trail
The spur to Big Pine Mountain occurs at the Madulce trail junction at the 12 mile point
(here's a picture I took of the same location six months earlier)
Sabine and Diane on the summit block
Steve was there too
. . .as was David!
Cool fog is pouring over from Santa Barbara, but we would get no relief up here
When you leave the wilderness, you know you are almost done!
David provides valued input on the number of levels over "4" that he believes the hike should be rated.
Highest point in Santa Barbara county
Steve's 580th leaf
