When we set out yesterday morning we weren't sure if we would even make it there, we had severe wind warnings, sand storms and cold temperatures coming in. But we packed up our long pants and some jackets and Jim was game to drive into whatever the desert through at him and off we went. Two hands on the wheel, tighten the seat belts off to OZ we went. It was crazy as we crossed over the mountains but on Yucca Valley side it wasn't so bad other than it was freezing.
The bonus was you couldn't have asked for a better picture day, the colours were so crisp and the sky so blue. I did throw in some of the growth just to break up the boulder pictures. :)
Our kind of Rock Climbing :)
At the end of the walk (depending on which loop you follow) were petroglyphs. Unfortunately vandals had painted over top of them, but they were still pretty neat.
8000 steps through crevasses, up and down rocks and hills and trudging sand, what a great day. Looking forward to my glass of wine and 2 advil. :).
A great home cooked Italian dinner with a lovely bottle of wine. I had the homemade ravioli, delish.
