Howdy All :)

Hiked the Strawberry loop with friends yesterday. The wildflowers are starting to pop but did not see any lemon lilies. Wellman's and Strawberry cienegas are flowing well, as are the crossings at Deer, Bed and Lily springs.

Only downside -- biting insects :x Apparently I didn't use enough DEET. I'm alternating scratching and typing :lol:

If there is a good reason for their creation, I don't know of it. I usually mange to suck a few down my throat as well.

Miracle Marilyn and I took the first tram up yesterday and hiked the Strawberry loop. This time, we scrambled up the rocks to San Jacinto to have lunch. Got back to the tram at 5 PM and immediately got in line to go down when we saw the mass of humanity. Took an hour to get down. As usual, the tram staff were wonderful. My next trip up the tram will be on a Friday or Sunday. For now, the tram is the best way for me to get into the high country.

All of the spring crossings still have terrific flow. The wildflowers are gorgeous. The water at Bed springs crossing tastes fabulous. Lily spring is living up to it's name 8) The biting insects are out -- I put DEET on before hiking but should have carried some. The new sign at the peak is still there :lol: The food at the Original Las Casuelas is still fabulous.
