  • The natural beauty of this landscape is amazing. I love to sit in the quietness. Definitely worth the trip if you're visiting Barstow, or just passing through.
  • Went trail running today starting at the owl canyon camping area. The natural area is free for day use and $6 per night for camping. The canyons were amazing there and tons of trails that are not mapped. This place was amazing to take pictures and hike around. Excited to camp here in the spring.
