    Although it was difficult, it was worth it. We did the loop plus some other hiking trails along the way, making it a 10 mile hike. The trail either went up or down. There were hills filled with beautiful flowers. Tri peaks trail had some amazing boulders to rock climb, and the view was extraordinary. On the way there, we came across thousands of black bees that were living underground, which was a cool experience. On our way back to the parking lot it was already dark, and the night animals came out. We saw a baby black Diamond rattlesnake, as well as a baby scorpion, and three kangaroo mice. Plus other interesting insects. Next time, be sure to pack extra flashlights, water, and start the hike before 12:00.
