|This and the next 7: Sierra Vista Trail near Soledad Rocks|
There were other outdoor enthusiasts enjoying nature in the high desert, but we only crossed paths with three men, one a mountain biker; and we saw a guy in the distance hiking with his two dogs.
I felt pretty tired during the last third of our hike, and I attribute it to having slept really soundly last night. I'm not sure of the dynamics involved, but I frequently experience this phenomenon after a "hard" sleep; I often feel better the next day after a "fitful" sleep. That makes no sense at all, I know.
