A Mere Saunter

First three:  Soledad Rocks
Dr. K and I decided it would do Becca more harm than good by leaving her at home while we did a Sunday morning hike, so we brought her along to the upper Sierra Vista Trail with us; and we all did a highly abbreviated trek--a saunter, really--at the Soledad Rocks.  We kept it real easy so she wouldn't exert herself too much.  On the prescription instructions on the Rimadyl bottle it reads "Restrict Activity," and we did just that.  She's been completely out of action in terms of hiking for the past four days.  She seemed happy to get out into the desert, and her physical condition afterward is good.

Those rocks are awesome! Wild scenery.

That prickly pear cactus that you photographed had a lot of bites taken out of it. Amazing what some desert critters can consume.

Hi Jacqui:

They are indeed awesome. In many sections you can do quite a bit of safe climbing on them. :)
