So far we've hiked three sections of the Backbone Trail (BBT). We've traveled miles of trail - specifically 27 of them - through some of the most scenic topography this side of the Sierra Nevadas. Looking back at previous blog posts, we've talked about various topics and most of them have to do with means of conveyance. Even the topic of cars came up not that long ago in Vroom!
As you can imagine, there are many things to discover on the BBT. From that rare plant you've always wanted to see to that random chance you end up sharing a trail with a deer or even a bobcat. Solitude and natural quiet are up there on the list, especially if you spend a lot of your time in a city. Clear air and the smell of the various plant communities is a plus - it's even one of the reasons this park was established by Congress in 1978. In other words, there's a bouquet of things to see; but what about things to find?
