Where should we go? First though, where are we? Well we are at Y looking at this sign. We parked the car at X. That where the Little House on the Highway is stored at a small RV storage facility. My home is situated right about where O is. I've been on all the trails of the park numerous times. Now I take to animal trails cross country just to explore and find new things. Well being this is a weekend with a lot more than the usual amount of visitors, let's head away from them towards Z on Two Quarry Trail and search for an animal path to follow.
And we're off.
Guess we better not go this way off the trail.
Let's go further along and see what we can find.
Oops, not here either.
Ah, here we go. See the faint animal path? Deer are the main path makers.
After several hours of this, with lots ups and downs and nary an animal or bird to be seen,
let's start heading back.
Wait, what are these doing here? I've come across this type of debris a few times hidden away in the never visited reaches of the park. My guess it is left behind from the days of long ago when men quarried cobblestone from this area for the buildings and streets San Francisco, and then to help the rebuild of the city after the great earthquake of 1906. Soon thereafter the quarries ceased operation for cobblestone streets weren't that great for automobiles.
These barrels tumbled down from the top of this steep ravine long ago.
What is really interesting is to think some of these boulders came down from above sometime after the barrels. Notice how this rock crashed into the side. Imagine the force in the torrent of water needed to dislodge the boulders.
And that my friends is all I have to show for our half a day wandering through the woods last Saturday. That's not to say I didn't enjoy myself. How about you?
