Our attempt at an Old Western Photo.
The end of the trail offered up the best view of the day. Here at the Port Hueneme Pier you can watch some surfers in action or just stare out at the Channel Islands. All in all it was nice to just get out of the house for a couple of hours and hangout with my son.
Mmmmm the best part of the whole hike.
I have been asked to do a guest blog entry for hikingtripreports.com, so next weeks blog entry will be a link to that blog and you will be able to read next weeks entry there. Along with the blog I am going to try to put a slide show together of our first four hikes. I'm pretty excited about this cool opportunity, but I need your help. I need you to help me pick which hike I go on next week. Here are your two choices.
Horn Canyon Trail
Please leave your comments below and don't forget to vote. Check back next week to see which trail was picked, by you, the readers.

In the background you can see where our destination is, just over 1.25 miles away. This hike was an easy hike with little elevation climb and plenty of beautiful views. The beginning of the hike offered up two quick creek crossings for us to maneuver through.
The trail led us from the water crossings to a nice dirt trail that would take us to the rock formations. Time to sit and take a break.
Around one of the bends you are greeted with this wonderful piece of Mother Nature.
As you get closer to the formations, more of the rocks come into view. The Hiking book we are using informed us there are caves in this rock formation for us to explore. We went looking for them, but came up empty handed. I don't really think you can consider this is cave. Here are a few pictures of the rocks, makes you wonder how and why they are where they are.Here is Nish hanging out in the rocks. Here is a view of the mountains from the rock formation. When we started the hike there was a sign stating that there was some rock art and to keep an eye out for it. On the way back to the car we found some, for some reason I don't think this was the rock art the sign was talking about.
This hiking things is actually turning out to be something I look forward to doing and sharing the day with my son. Since my hiking partner is ditching me for a birthday party next week, I will be hiking one of the city hikes solo. If you feel like joining me next week I will be conquering "The Bubbling Spring Recreational Greenbelt" in Port Hueneme.
