Heading Down

First view from the Grand View
Dr. K, Becca and I packed up before heading over to the Grand View Trail for our traditional "leaving the high country" hike; as it happens we did part of the upper Bridal Veil Falls Trail, too.  It was a beautiful morning, and we hated to leave the Sacramento Mountains behind, but duty calls.  High today in the low desert:  80F.  High in High Rolls:  57F.  Not bad in either locale, I guess.

I really like the photo of the fall colors in the 3-leaf sumac. What a beautiful High Rolls trail that is!
