Haven't been able to get out much lately but rain or shine decided to head out yesterday for hike in the Jacumba Mountains. Rained intermittently all day but never enough to put on rain gear.

One of many granitic domes in the area.

Large cairn in the middle of nowhere.

Stumbled on this practice bomb a long way away from the nearest bombing range. This is the tail fins section but not a good view. The rest of the bomb was a few yards away. Interesting find on Pearl Harbor Day.

Heading home. The truck is parked at the bump just past Palm Canyon Wash. About ten miles and 2.5K g/l and another nice day in the desert. Enjoy! Tom

Was south of that road and headed more toward Moan but similar area. Really like it up there.


Ziphius, don't mind the rain either, just don't like wind!

Daren, you would have like it since there was a lot of ascending/descending steep rocky slidy stuff smile

Great photos and post! Love the raindrops in the water.

Yes, it's added to my list! smile It was raining steadily at Kitchen Creek on Saturday. And then in Jojoba Wash on Sunday, only a few drops with great views of the weather coming down on the surrounding mountains.
