There’s no way to see every trail, but it’s still a good idea to see the ones you can while you’ve got the chance. This is Old Culp Valley Road after a lightning-sparked wildfire roared through. Before the fire, the area was lush with green plant life (“lush” is relative; this is still a desert area) and now it’s a charred shadow of its former self. Regrowth started quickly, and it will be a pleasure to watch this area regain its former beauty as the years progress.
