(5/17/06) Get ready to splash in the summer this Memorial Day Weekend on the Sespe Backpack. Beautiful and refreshing swimming holes, sandy beaches, and remote natural hot springs await us. Andy and I had so much fun scouting the trip, I almost forgot it was a scout trip.
Many flowers are in bloom, dozens of horny toad lizards to be seen scurrying about, hundreds of arroyo toads hopping around, Big Horn Sheep to be seen grazing on the cliffs over Sespe Hot Springs, and beautiful birds flying across Sespe Creek. Sespe Wilderness is as wild as it gets in Southern California. Get ready to run wild along Southern California's last free river!
