Strong chilly winds were the order of the day, as well as bright sunshine. What better way to celebrate the Festival of Fire than an off trail adventure!
The amazing ancient trees, soaring cliffs, incredible boulders, lichens, shrubs, and cacti were inspiring, along with the stillness and solitude. And there were still a goodly number of beautiful cactus flowers, along with yellow and white daisies.
Such wonders so close to home!
