There weren't too many outdoor enthusiasts around when I got an early start, and I only saw a few when I headed back in. Ongoing construction at the entrance to the Tortugas Mountain Trails Recreation Area (Sunset side) has got me wondering if I should start hiking from the gate at Geothermal Road until work has moved on to another location. I meant to start doing it last week, but simply forgot. See if I can keep it in mind until tomorrow morning.
