Day 175: Lizard Homework Series Day 8 (Some Pictures!)

I hate road walking. Today was my road walk to connect my steps around the fire closure still in effect near Idyllwild. That meant I needed to connect where the PCT comes out near Paradise Valley Cafe to Humber Park. I started at Humber Park this mor...
