My favorite wash
Another hike out the back gate. It is a little longer than most, a little over 7 miles, but very doable before lunch and it is so worth it. The wash is beautiful, with varied plant life, birds, a natural bee hive (unfortunately every year there appear to be fewer bees in it), and it has amazing rocks.
It is obvious that there used to be a lot more water going through it as the walls are quite high and there is evidence of small waterfalls.
We scrambled out where the walls were not too imposing and bushwhacked our way to a hill top and down to one of the forest roads home.
