The morning was cool and low clouds. We hiked as a group of 8 as we ascended the Montezuma Quail Trail from the campground area. This was a steep climb or descent depending on which way you are hiking. This would be the only challenging part of the hike as the indian Lodge Trail is more flowing with ups and downs. The are views that shouldn't be missed. And the vegetation some of which is unique only to the Davis Mtns. and the Big Bend area.
