|This and the next: Soaptree Yuccas and Desert Willows|
Right off we ran into two women with two dogs, all of whom were friendly. We also encountered runners out on Geothermal Road. On the inbound leg of our trek we met our pal Raymond and hiked back to the parking area with him.
It was nice to see so many people out enjoying nature on Memorial Day; I just wish young men would refrain from climbing to the mountaintop and screaming at the top of their lungs for no apparent reason other than to hear themselves.
