I am glad you finally feel well enough to get back out there. Can't wait to see your TR.

Thanks..cough, cough...I am still not well but I could not stay home during my break, I think I am heading back out tomorrow to backpack into Canebrake if anyone is interested. While the doctors still try and *guess* what is wrong with me I am moving on with my life (albeit coughing and lung pain). They said at first pneumonia but xrays and other tests proved negative, going on 8 weeks of this crap now...anyway, enough of that....the TR is kinda lengthy so it will be tonight or so.

Thanks, if you are near Blair Valley again, maybe go check out Rainbow Canyon, Schad recommends it for wildflower blooms..I am going to try and go have a look this week.

Thanks for the info on Rainbow Canyon. While we won't be camping in that area we will be out in the desert for 2 weeks so we will have plenty of time for a trek out that way. We haven't been out to Anza Borrego since Thanksgiving so we are really anxious for this trip
