Mission Creek Preserve

While Joshua Tree National Park is our literal backyard, we do have another backyard over in the Mission Creek Preserve (not to slight our yet-another backyard in the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve). Yesterday, "Nobody Hikes In L.A." (a website dedicated to disproving its title) did a bit on the Mission Creek Preserve. The author describes the popular hike from the gate to the Pacific Crest Trail down in Whitewater Canyon.

I was hesitant to do the trail from the Mission Creek down into Whitewater by myself.
But, with the help of none other than Ron Gilbert himself, I did it a couple of years ago.
A great hike, parked cars at both ends, started in Mission Creek & wound down the PCT to Whitewater.
Do it.
Thanks Ron, I still have that pic ya took on the Crest.
One of my favorites...
