Miles Hiked: 3.30 Miles  Elapsed Time: 2 minutes


This was a nice hike for the morning.  We started out on Cattail Trail and then cut off on Fossil Valley down to the pond.  This was scenic with lots of bridges over dry creek beds and there was some elevation points too, which gets the heart pumping.  We circled around the pound area and walked down a dry creek bed for a bit.  Then back to the fossil trail looping bck to Cattail and to the truck.  It was humid and about 65 deg.  A nice morning hike.
