Sunday Morning Hike With Hiker And My Brother Keith

My brother Keith was visiting Hiker and me last weekend. On Sunday, we did a 2 mile hike in Elsmere Canyon in the Santa Clarita Valley.

We took the Creek Trail. There is no water in the creek because we have not had any rain for a long time, but there is still some really cool scenery in this canyon.

There are groves of coastal oak trees and some really fantastic cliffs that run across the southwest side of the canyon.

We noticed a huge cave up on one of the cliffs, but there was no way to climb up there.

Here is me and Hiker along the trail

Here is my brother Keith standing in front of some gigantic rocks that had falling down the mountain-side

The Creek Trail is a very easy trail to hike. The Loop Trail that goes up the mountain is very narrow land very steep.

  1. How lovely. I do love hiking. Looks like it was a gorgeous day! Best wishes, Tammy

  2. Oh, if only my knees would bend as good as yours do, Kay. I would be in *heaven*!! *lol*

    What a nice time it sounds like you had, with your brother & Hiker. I hope for rain soon, for your area.


  3. I would enjoy this hike. It sure is dry there.


Thanks for hiking along with me and Hiker.
