East Mesa Loop 4/12/2021
It is a crisp morning in the shade. Temp is in the 40s.
Looks like SD is under the sea.
Our complete group picture (just in case that we will split).
John is reaching somewhere where is nothing. Not even geocache.
We are splitting. John, Rob and Angelika will follow the map.
Rest of us is looking for an easy way down to the cabin. Can it be here?
There is a faint trail with no brush.
This place needs some work.
Way out may involve some bushwhacking.
So far not bad.
Just wondering where those ticks are waiting for us.
Susan is getting more energy.
Out of the bush.
There is a smoke over Lagunas!
Lunch place is under our traditional tree.
Wit is leading.
Another Indian smoke signal?
No smoke signal just "controlled burn" this one is in Laguna.
On the other side by Cuyamaca there is another "controlled burn". We are in the middle.
Down by Harper Creek.
That will be more interesting.
Running water here.
Right side or Left?
Hopping from side to side.
Nice inviting pools.
We are all together and now it is a long walk back to the cars.
After hike. Next time it may cost us $10 to park here?!!
