Here are some photos from a loop hike I did last weekend to some remote peaks on the west side of Carrizo Gorge. It is a really beautiful and harsh area. I really love this part of the desert (minus the cholla). The full report is here is you want all the details.

Beautiful photos, tough terrain. Did you see any water during the trip? Thanks for posting.

ziphius,

Not a single drop of water anywhere. The side canyon we crossed going from Groan to Gasp was dry. Maybe there was some around that palm grove, but we didn't get very close to it.

Gorgeous photos. May I ask what kind of camera? I need something lightweight...

What ever camera you choose on, look into this. I place it on my day pack and larger pack. Holds a fairly heavy camera. Has a quick release to remove camera. I pack a lot of lenses so my pack is sort of heavy.

Robert,

Sorry for the late reply. I use a Canon Powershot Elph 170IS. Super light, small, and a pretty good point and shoot. It has a 12X optical zoom. It's not prosumer or pro level, but it seems to be the best compromise between quality, price, and portability for me. I usually buy one or two generations old because I go through about one camera a year. I am pretty rough on my equipment.
