Setting out

Let the routefinding begin

Penguin cactus

Dead ocotillo

Cholla skeleton

Lunching at Alcoholic Pass

Irresitable at Alcoholic Pass

Looking west from the pass

Splitting ocotillo

Looking down toward Coyote Creek

Outside the wilderness

Ocotillo Flat

Getting up close

So cuddly


Crackling mud

Coyote Creek, with water, as advertised

Looking down into the willows

Small scale erosion

Algae in the desert

Hummingbird being coy

About to enter the frog condo

Advanced chilling system

Twilight approaches

Pre-dinner lounging

Getting hungry


Last remnants of daylight



Packing up

Hanging on for dear life

Another peek at the creek

On the ridgeline

Winding up

Century plant stalk away!

Cloud wall/wave

Grassy plateau

Under attack

Dried but standing

Far ridge


Lone bone

Plenty of sage

Blue skies

Box canyon

Trudging downwards
