Another hike at Pedernales brought on by my desire to get out and about. This time, I drove into the Wolf Mountain Trail Parking Lot and then opted to take the North Loop Equestrian Trail for a bit before branching off to the East Boundary Trail travelling South. I followed this for about a mile and then took the trail that I thought would lead me back to the parking lot. However, I managed to take the wrong trail and cut back too soon meaning that I backtracked over the same trail more than I had originally anticipated.
I still ended up back at the parking lot but cut a little of my planned hike. I walked a total of 4 miles on another hot day with some shade provided by the cedars so it was not all bad. Interestingly enough, the trail was still quite wet in places as the water continued to drain down from the higher areas. At one point, I came across a solitary egg, deposited on the ground. There was no nest and no sign of any bird watching over it. A bit of a mystery.
I got some great pictures of the wonderful views and many of the various types of trail that I walked. An enjoyable couple of hours out walking.
As with all of these pictures, if you click on any one of them, it will enlarge and you can use the side arrows to move along. Use the “Escape” key to get back to normal.
