Nice Morning Hike At Vasquez Rocks County Park

Decided to get up early this morning and take Hiker up to Vasquez Rocks County Park for a hike.

We left the house at 7 am and by 7:25, were were there, however, the entrance gate was closed. I thought the park was open from sunrise to sunset, but I was wrong. They didn't open until 8 am. So Hiker and I took a morning drive over to the little town of Acton and back to kill time.

By the time we got back, the gate was open and so into the park we went for our hike.

I didn't have any specific trail I wanted to take this morning, so we just headed anywhere Hiker decided we were going. I was looking to see if there were still any wild flowers, but most of them had wilted and died and all of the green grass that was there the last time we were there hiking had dried out and turned brown.

There were a lot of docents there cleaning up the area, so we tried to head out in areas where they were not working.

Found a few spots where there were a few wild flowers still growing, but not many.

Did find a few Yuccas that were bloom and they were pretty, but even most of those were drying out and dying.

Hiker seemed to be enjoying our hike. I think Vasquez Rocks is one of her favorite places.

We did almost 2 miles and I took lots of photographs. All in all, it was a nice morning and a great hike.
