Expedition Team: Dave Miller, Rosie, Miller Expedition Date: October 4, 2019
We hiked three trails at the park. My favorite was the 1.7 mile Skull Rock Nature Trail. Skull Rock is a skull shaped desert granite rock formation with two depressions like eye sockets created by erosion. We climbed many nearby granite rocks of various heights to get desert views. The large rocks often took on various shapes like the Teeth of Skull Rock (Photo#4) and The Praying Hands (Photo#8). Along the trail at intervals for informational signs placed at various desert shrubs, flowers and rock formations. One interesting wild desert plant was Red Top Buckwheat.
