After a year of putting off exploring Madera Canyon, we finally made it out there and were pleasantly surprised. Not only did we get to see fall foliage, we also found a steep trail that led to an old, abandoned mine that operated in the 1900s.
The elevation gain on this trail made me feel like I was out of shape. I don't think husband broke a sweat though. >_<
Real trees! Living in the desert, I get excited easily by this...
Apparently Madera Canyon is THE place to bird watch.... we saw more bird photographers than actual birds....
Abandoned mining cart off the trail.
The mine, which is boarded and full of stagnant waterand guarded by wasps.
