Dude, that is exactly the same place i was hiking last october! There's a nice route down to Lake Cahuilla from the LQ cove trailhead. What are you doing out there?
Workshop on Corrosion. Engineers can only afford these places off-season.... But seeing the road-runner birds is pretty neat.
See how much of the Boo Hoff trail you can do - it's like 12 miles round trip
