    Beautiful view, but beware of the cactus!

    I took my shepherd on one of the trails at Lost Dog Wash and wish I had kept her home. Although a scenic walk for me, my dog was hot and itching to explore off the narrow trail. Since she is a bigger dog, it was hard to share the trail with others while making sure she was clear from cactus. Towards the end of the trail (2.4 mi) a couple of cactus balls attached to her leg. If you decide to take the hike, make sure you bring lots of water, and a towel to pull the spikes out from the cactus.
