Thursday, we took another hike in the desert. This time is was the Pass Mountain Trail at Usery Mountain Park. The desert there is incredibly green and lush.
There was bright green lichen on the rocks.
We had lots more sunshine, both from above, as you can see from John's shadow here
and on the Pass Mountain hillsides, which had lots of poppies.
Of course, John had to take a picture of me taking pictures of all those flowers.
It was a great hike, but we were really, really tired by the end. We are delighted that we can, at this age, still complete a 7-mile hike. But we sure don't want to do it very often.
