Went out after the Gert BM through the badlands east of Lost. Temperatures were high 80's low 90's so it added to the adventure. Up this , it was only 200ft to get up on South Mesa. 30ft from the top became an issue. Steep mud cave stuff. 3 feet forward 2 feet slip back. Wife beat me up. I took a route on the west side. I'll call this hill "Hill full of hate" .
Upon the ridge of South Mesa finally. Looking back to Carrizo Creek.
Me looking back down. Theres a pole behind me. I think it marks the way down that is safe.
Gert BM. Theres 3 of them but heres one of them. Sure was warm out today.

Sweet. Are those mud hills solid or can they collapse into caves?

Really loose dirt just like the stuff in the mud hills. Lots of deep cut slots. I will guess there are caves about.

Before we climbed out of the badlands my wife dug around in the slots. Tried climbing up to the pole on top. There's a lot of these slots/notches all over. Some fun if you like playing in them. Had to drag her out to continue the journey. In the picture shes just below the pole, to the left.

Wife likes collecting the mylar balloons. 8 miles in there was a green one 1/2 mile away on the side of the hill. It was difficult talking her out of getting that one. She got 2 anyway.
