Todays image-s of the week are from this past weekend. On Friday I went on a 5 hour hike up Harding Canyon with a friend. The canyon is located in the Cleveland National Forest of Southern California. It was a fun hike even though it was fairly hot and there was a lot of poison oak along the trails. Luckily the stream is almost dry so we were able to use it when the paths were too overgrown. The water that remains in the stream is full of newts and the occasional snake ( not sure which kind ). We also saw several signs of Mountain Lions including paw prints and claw marks near the stream. This hike is probably best during the early spring when the stream has more water and it's a bit cooler. I'm not sure what kind of flowers these are so if you know leave a comment - thanks!
