Today was the first hike led by the informal hiking club, the Jacumba Hikers. The hikers met at the Museum prior to their departure. Bill led the group to the Mortero Palms. This is a destination that is often talked about, but with the exception of Bill, none of today's hikers had been.
"I thought the hike was awesome," said Martin Hitch. "This was a very unique spot and not typical of other hikes I have done in the desert."
The hikers also ran in to several other museum friends, who just happened to be hiking out to the Dos Cabezas spring. It was a busy day out in the desert today.
