we have been out the last couple of weekends just enjoying the Desert...here are some pics

Slippery as snot a couple weeks ago in and around Split Mountain! decided to stay out of the washes and bring the rhino along


Everything was a mess!


and with the mess the fun began!









coyote tracks





we checked out the ancient beach line near superstion of Lake Cahuilla and came across this...anyone have an idea what this is?


c02 canister or bomb?

Just when we thought we were avoiding the washes we came across this

fun day playing in the mud smile



Brenna handling the rig on the jeep trails

cold and freezing in San Diego, warm and sunny in Blair Valley


I love this camp spot smile


nice illegal fire

Nolina fruit





awesome smoke tree

the wildest one I have ever seen



Hit up Indian gorge last saturday...Daren I think we just missed you guys

Hanging out relaxing on the best memorial day ever in the Desert

with all the rain we wanted to check out Oriflamme to see if any water and NOTHING....we went pretty far upstream

so we headed to a man made oasis butterfield ranch....we stopped by agua caliente and there must have been 100 people in the outdoor pool and butterfield was vacant: although the water was brisk

Headed back to Little Blair for the night...can't believe the temps we have had lately...starting to warm up and we are headed to Northern cali, and the Pac. Northwest for the next couple of weeks smile

Those pilings/bollards at the fish creek mtns trestle are new, I don't remember those...damn that's muddy. Great TR, kids are getting big...the desert last weekend was awesome, I too went home to cold temps after being warm all weekend. Your rig is parked where Gary has his truck, we were out of there by 9am. I need to post a TR on our backpack trip..
Oh yeah, smoke trees seem to be big and bright this season, you got some good pics of them...Thumbs Up

Looks like a nice time out, Nolan. There's a bunch of markers on the west side of E085 related to the bombing range. I think that tall sign is one of them. Here's a couple other ones presumably guiding planes to specific targets:

With my bare hands! Actually, looking at GE you can see what they're about. Didn't realize it when I was out there a couple years ago but they're 5,000 ft markers heading toward a target tank. I only saw the 20K and 30K markers but they're all still out there and visible on GE.
