This was our first attempt at our new hiking lifestyle! So I'm not sure how accurate my ratings are yet without much else to compare it to.

We drove there all the way from Houston because we didn't want just flat terrain. In that respect we were not disappointed! I pretty sure we lost all track of paths and just went our own course down into the gully and climbing back out. We lasted about an hour in the heat. I hope not bad for our first time.

I am a little fuzzy on the paths and how much of the park we did or did not get to explore. Not totally in love with this one but from reading other logs perhaps it needs another go.

Did not see a single other person, but it was 4th of July. Our idea of celebrating freedom was probably not what others had in mind!
