Kinley Creek

Here is where we hike a lot. The creek is named Kinley Creek and it flows down from the Pinnacles. We have never seen anyone here but we can clearly hear gun fire from the nearby shooting range (Private).

When we first started hiking this area last year, I was concerned someone might be out shooting where we walked. We find tons of spent shot gun casings around. But we haven't seen anyone at all. We figure people must come there at night or early morning. You can tell people have been there from all the trash.

Yesterday we decided to follow the creek down a bit to see what we would find.

We found a bunch of interesting rock formations in the area. I'd sooner expect to see something like this in Joshua Tree NP. But as you can see from the roughness, this rock is not as ancient as the Joshua Tree NP rocks.

Kinley Creek has a lot of falls when there is water. Come fall, it should be dry. But now, we have lots of water to play in. The dogs love it

There is so much trash in the area that I tried to help remove some. I can't tell how many bags we've taken out in the past year. There's always a bit more though!

Solo waited for me to finish collecting garbage lol

And the family shot:

If Solo were a black or a brown Newfoundland, I would seriously worry about some newbie shooting him in the mistake he was a bear. We often hear comments on that effect. And I have mistaken bears for Newfoundlands in the past. No joke
