Santa Rosa Plateau in January

I was getting overwhelmed trying to find a trail we could enjoy without hurting ourselves.

The visitor center was well worth the stop.

The gentleman at the desk immediately saw us coming. He brought out a map and helped us plot out a walk.

It’s called Waterline Rd then back on Vista Grande Trail its just our kind of walk.

This time of year the beautiful plant life is brown but the trees, animals & spacious surroundings didn’t disappoint us.

We saw baby rabbits and well-fed squirrels. Also,some interesting paw prints on the trail.

What look like Claw marks on the trail? Maybe???

Also, along the trail is a stream but in January the water level is low so we didn’t see any turtles or fairy shrimp this time ….maybe in the Spring.

We had a great walk and enjoyed the scenery. If you are in the area check out the plateau. Here is a map
