I do not know who ducked those three miles from the citrus tree groves to the beginning of the trail, but whoever it was, they deserve a pat on the back. It's so cool, once you start finding them, and look for the next one and so on, it really makes those three miles go by fast. They are not down in the main wash, they are on the alluvial fan. Also, they are mainly comprised of white rocks, because whoever did it was well aware that the sun will be low in the sky when you are stumbling out!


In case anyone is interested, the white ducks are still in place. I didn't pay much attention to find the start of the route from the citrus groves and just aimed at the bottom of Rabbit's E-ridge, but came across the ducks fairly quickly. A big thanks to whoever put them up. They do "glow" and are a great time saver.

This was my New Year's Eve hike: East - west traverse of the Santa Rosas, up the E-ridge of Rabbit, then on to Villager and down the S-ridge to S-22 where my wife picked me up again. Took less than 10 hours and the views were totally awesome all the way.
