Wow time flies. 50 years ago! Found some old photos from 1965 going through my Dad's stuff. He is 86 and still with us thankfully, just helping to organize his place. Anyway don't know if this was our first trip there. Dad used to take us to the desert every winter. That's my little brother and my Mom (r.i.p.). Who knew I would still be hiking the area for 50 years. I hope for another 30!
Cheers!


Neat stone tool spotted from my latest trip in May 2015. Mastadon meat cutter??? Left in a bush for the next traveler.

Those are some classic pictures.
Looks they belong in an old desert camping book
Thanks for sharing

Love those pic's Rockhopper. I believe the top pic was taken north of Coyote Mtn maybe even near the entrance to Butler Cyn. See the white chevron behind the little white hill on the top of the ridge to the right of your mom? Here's a pic of my grandparents in Borrego in the late thirties. I am definitely not hiking in the right clothing! Please comment if anybody recognizes the location.
