4 great iPhotos by Sherry Green

Monday's hike was windy but not cold (at least after we got started). We enjoyed the beginnings of a Claret Cactus show and the splendid views in all directions.
This was along the tops of the cliffs southwest of the Hospital in Del Norte.  If you have time, those cactus flowers will be in bloom for another couple of weeks--worth an uphill walk to the South-facing slopes up high.  Several other floral shows may be getting ready to show off in the same area.  

Thanks for Sherry's fotography and enthusiasm.  My camera needed a dose of energy which I hadn't given it.

No hike on Wednesday this week.  We will start Monday and Wednesday hikes at the Visitor Center in South Fork on May Day  (May First and May 3rd).  As usual we will try to have a different hike each of the two days.  Normal starting time:  9 a.m.   

Dennis is back and hiking. In June (or before) he will offer kids' hikes, probably with gathering and parking at the Chapel of the South Fork.  Another adult or more help keep things happy and under control.  


Early bloomers of Cactus

Cactus flowers come in various colors; these Clarets are among the most dramatic

Just a mile and a half outside (and above)
Del Norte, you get a sense of wildness.

Walking down hill (we have about 50% of our hikes in that down direction).
