Howdy folks, Larry here and a short intro. I've been looking at this site for sme time and finally decided I should join it.

I LOVE Carrizo Gorge, and the surrounding areas. I USED to live in Jacumba, boy was that an adventure.

I saw some posts about Davies Valley and Pinto Wash, want to check those places out someday, I know they are closed to vehicles, does that mean Bicycles too?

I did a geocaching trip into Myers Valley and above it and that's when I decided I needed to check out Davies Valley too. I've heard though it can be a bit sketchy with the illegals in the area? any word on that?

I've replied to a couple posts on the Carrizo Pictographs and about a Shamans cave in the Carrizo Palm grove. Would like to check those out...

anyway here's a couple galleries of two of the 3 trips to the trestle so far. The third trip was going to Indian hill and crossing over to the railway and walking down the tracks to the trestle. I didn't really take any pictures of that trip as it was not too exciting.

Trip 2:

Does this group of rocks look familiar to anyone? there was a geocache in there but I'm wondering if this is close to the Carrizo pictographs? This is just after the drop off/drop down where the old road closed sign was. You can't go any further with a vehicle from here.

BTW I think they've been cleaning caches out of national parks and state parks as they don't want people trashing the places.

Welcome to the board..!

BTW, geocaching in ABDSP has been illegal since 2007. I only know because I have found a few by accident and wondered why there were no entries after 2007 and looked them up when I got home. Turns out the park banned them back in 2007 and the geocaching sites removed their listings.

Yeah I just went to my geocaching profile and read about this. It's been a while. I'm not sure but I think Virtual Caches are allowed aren't they?

I'm going to have my friend get mines if it's still out there and remove it.
