Had to zoom in to get this guy.  He would never have let me get as close as it looks like I am.

We managed to find the occasional welcome shady spot along the trail.

Where the path was questionable, there were rock cairns to show the way.

And sometimes we just followed the dry riverbed.

About sryoder

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.

    Some of those pictures look like prime rattlesnake habitat- especially the dry grass. They have really beautiful creatures there. Don’t get bit- it’s a long way to a real hospital. .Those rattlers have a dual toxin- both neuro and hemolytic like a Mojave rattlesnake.

      I have no doubt the rattlers are out there but we’ve yet to see or hear anything larger than a small lizard. We make plenty of noise, though, and generally behave as if the area is crawling with snakes.
