Coppertone sits at Chula Vista on the Far Reaches Trail. This is one of the better views in the park and looks a bit better in person than on camera.

Comments: Coppertone and I covered the Wildcat Canyon and Far Reaches trails today. At this rate it will take maybe three more visits to hike everything that the park has to offer. The butterflies were out in droves today. At some points along the trail our passing by caused a virtual swarm of them to take flight. Very entertaining. Being a very nice day, there were plenty of other people on the trail, both on foot and on bikes. Looks like lots of other people have found out about Government Canyon. One might find more solitude farther back in the park.
