Days 3 and 4 – Pat Spring and the Ventana Ridges
April 30 - May 1, 2006

Days 3 and 4 are time to rest and take it easy. I got some poison oak on my face at Apple Tree Camp, plus my legs were really tired, so I just hung out at Pat Springs and took it easy until my face got less swollen. Pat Spring at this time of year is absolutely beautiful, with birds all over the place.

I saw quail, and a variety of other birds I can't name, but they were chattering to each other constantly. A flock of birds lived and played around the big white dead tree in the pictures, you can see a few of them in one of the shots.
