A whole bunch of people left the 57 degree side of the Caldecott tunnel and braved the hot inland temperatures (91 degrees by our car's estimate) to find a whole lot of goodness.
Yes, it's a drive. And yes, it can be darn hot out there. But it is so worth it! There is so much to explore and there is so much quiet to hear. We sat in the shade of a tree and cooled down. We found a fig tree! We saw beetles, rabbits, ground squirrels, horses, horse poop, hawks, and tadpoles. Some of us got really dirty. It was awesome.
