|Beginning the Hike|
|A Little Ways up the Trail|
|Looking South Toward Corral Mountain|
|Yet Another Rubber Boa|
This segment of trail travels around the north side of a mountain and passes through large stands of tall evergreen trees. The trees provide cool shade to the forest floor. The understory is only about knee high or so, with abundant white columbine flowers scattered throughout. Red squirrels and woodpeckers are common in these woods.

Here's another post with pictures from this and another nearby canyon.
