Then you make your way along the middle of the hills again and start dropping back over the hills and going down toward Vasquez.
Back in the park, I ran into a guy training to be a docent for school groups so he filled me in on some cool stuff about the park like what Mormon Tea is (a thin needle-like plant that acts like ephedra and is actually used for tea) and that the town of Acton was actually going to be the state capital of California because there was so much gold in the area. Very fun stuff.
Overall, the hike alternated between grandiose and a little tedious. However, the beauty more than made up for the boredom and I highly recommend hiking in this area and the Antelope Valley in general.
