Fishbowl – Cedar Creek Loop

The Sespe Wilderness Area is vast. Within it are enough trails to keep an active hiker busy for years - or for someone like me, for a lifetime. A few of the trails are more active.

Last Saturday I went on a hike with three different groups to a lovely spot east of Apple Valley in the San Bernardino mountains. Deep Creek is an extremely popular clothing optional hiking destination. I have met people from…Read more Deep Creek Hot Springs Hike
