A Nice Morning Hike Along The Lost Horse Loop Trail
The other morning, instead of heading up toward the Lost Horse Mine, we crossed the road and took the Lost Horse Loop Trail in reverse. We were just out for a nice morning walk, so we just headed off into the valley. This is a great trail as it heads out about 2 or 3 miles to the south and goes through a verdant area full of beautiful Joshua Trees and lots of vegetation. We were excited to see so many flowers still in bloom at this point in May. We walked along for about an hour and then our stomachs started rumbling from hunger and we could smell the coffee brewing back at the bunkhouse, so we headed back pronto, with some wonderful images in our minds and my camera. Go early, as this hike is very popular and the parking lot tends to get full right away. Take the entire 6 mile Lost Horse Loop Trail sometime, it's one of the best hikes in the Park.
