Lighting Strike and Striking Views
As the trail traverses back toward the North side of the mountain. Good views can be had across canyon to Vermillion Castle and Northwest to Parowan Valley and Little Salt Lake.
Along this portion of the trail watch for the dead trees, usually standing alone, the black streak, a tail- tale sign of a lighting strike. Also, standing along the trail are large pine trees. Take a moment and smell deeply from one of the cracks in the bark. What do you smell? This is one of the few regions in the world you will inhale the distinctive smell of Vanilla.
