A short hike from the weekend

I spent last Saturday trudging through the wilderness of back bay in Newport Beach.  It is a really nice place to go and spend an afternoon if the weather is right.  The upper part is great this time of year with some good trails and a ton of nice flowers.   There are humming birds buzzing all over and you can usually see a fair amount of hawks hovering around and hunting the millions of rabbits that live there.  Occasionally you can catch a glimpse of some burrowing owls who live there also.

The lower part can get pretty mucky but is work a little hike.  There are a ton of march birds and lots of butterflies that wander a midst the reeds and bullrush down by the water.
