Through Dog Canyon And Beyond

Park Boundary
If you stay in the arroyo, the only sign you are leaving the park is this barbed wire overhead.

Comments: I hiked to Dog Canyon and kept going until I left the park boundary. The trail to Dog Canyon was flat and somewhat boring, but the canyon was magnificent. I kept hiking through the dry arroyo until it took me outside of the park boundary and onto private property. The trail was a little boring, but I saw a couple of peregrine falcons -- awesome birds!

Once I turned around, I decided to get out of the arroyo and hike along some dirt roads until I reached the park boundary. There I had to reenter the arroyo to get back to Dog Canyon.
