Pink Mariposa Lily

Welcome to Section C

Well--back on the trail after 3 zero days--one on a whim to Desert Hot Springs. Great hot pools. Back into the social PCT mode after hiking sections E, F and G and seeing no one. I met many thru hikers. I was also pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the San Gorgonio Wilderness--it looks like Utah and the canyon country with different colors of rock striations in the cliffs. Also an amazing variety of plants--the coming together of Mojave cactus species and other species from farther north. Hedgehog cactus next to yucca, mormon tea and cholla. Forded my first creek of the season--Whitewater. Saw an iridiscent fuschia colored hummingbird looking into my tent--wow! The Mesa Wind Farm had ice cream bars and pizza, but I didn't stop, being so fresh. The flowers: yerba santa, chamise, yarrow, pink mariposa lilies, wild onion, bush poppy and larkspur.
