Mount Israel – February 3, 2013

Lots of pictures for this short 4.5 mile hike with Dom, Bob, Java and me. We saw two beautiful snakes heading up the Del Dios Highland trail. Wild lilacs were in bloom creating gorgeous purple hillsides. There are lots of short trails with Del Dios Highlands combined with the Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve but no sign or map indicates which peak is Mount Israel. As it turns out, it is also called the Elfin Forest Overlook (elevation 1346′)
