Description

There are two mailboxes at the top full of notebooks and letters that people have written in remembrance of Jack Edwards, who died of leukemia in 1995. It is a beautiful tribute.

Flora & Fauna

The flowers appear in the spring and don't last long into summer because of the heat. This is a great winter climb when many other trails are inaccessible.
