Nice drive up Rainbow Wash to base of Fonts.


Been a while, do not remember it that narrow


Eriogonum Inflatum (one of my favorites) "trumpet flower" I have some very large dried ones form the Mojave Desert in a vase


Native Gypsum sparkling over the mud hills


Looking South at the Pinyons, you do not realize the elevation gain


Iron mud concretion, let's see, a head, spine and ribs, Paleontologist time


Headed out the way you come in, wash has one place that is very tight, couple of S bends


Well the FJ was just a little too wide and a little too stock, heard a little grind thought it was a tire slip, and I bent the plastic.


I finally looked underneath the FJ from my desert travels, somehow this is supposed to be a skid plate


Bottom of radiator completely exposed as well, time for aircraft aluminum

Nice photos...yeah, the bottom of my truck is pretty messed up also, I thought they were scrapes but they turned out to be doubled over bent spots on the cross beams. Rainbow Wash looks very nice....

Nice trip. Camped up Hills of the Moon Wash a few years back but not as colorful as Rainbow as I recall. Pretty nice dents in the skid plate! Tom
