It's like Alice's underworld in some places! Other spots have great outlook views, and places to rest, or meditate. The coyotes and owls make their presence known out there (dusk). Watch your step for native lounging lizards! It's easy to lose yourself in the stairstepping--counting them is a fun challenge. Sometimes there are nice pools, where your barking dogs can cool off, and your canines. I ran into one guy who was doing one of those satellite scavenger hunts. Found out there's stuff hidden back there with log books! Pretty cool.
