Trail Quest: Caliente Mountain

While visiting the wildflowers out at the Carrizo Plain I made the 16.5 mile roundtrip hike out to Caliente Mountain. Great views plus some super bloom action out along the ridge without all the crowds. The article appears in section A of the May 8th, 2017 edition of Santa Barbara News-Press.
