Took a trek out to the "hinterlands" of our wonderful back country last week. Hiked in the back country from the intersection of the SD county / imperial county and Riverside county lines. Found some old trails along the way and followed em'. Covered about 20 miles in 2 full "short" daylite days.


Trail not used much anymore


Trail follwed up the desert varnish up to here. Thats Villager peak beyond.


G. Earth photo of the spot. Could it be?


On the way back down found several burial mounds near the trail.


Sherd with some engraved design near the mounds. fish? mountians?


Next day after the rain. Saw these out on the desert varnish.


Chipings around sleeping circles


More sleeping circles. Shadow is hiking poles in pack.


Trails near sleeping circles


Neat grinding rock


ABDSP intersection :-)


And more sleeping circles.


Already planning the next hike... Cheers!!

The 'could it be?' photo looks vaguely like an extinct volcano. ?? Awesome country out there, amazing piece of pottery you found too. I wonder if the myriad of sleeping circles are visible on Google Earth.

Hello all. Had a chance to upload some youtube videos of the hikes.

Daren: Your very close. Its a unnamed canyon south of Barton canyon. I am planning a 4 dayer up or down the Martinez canyon route to the Cactus spring trail to Hwy 74 after some serious rain. I'm looking for some fellow explorerssmile

mrkmc: The could it be pic? I sent the pic to the Meteorite Men Show on cable. Stay tunedsmile

ziphius: I still think it looks like a impact crater. But, I'm probably just dreaming.

Edit: Added photos and video.

Mylar balloon count : 7

I would guess its a landslide landslide. I think this view from a different angle is the same area you are looking at?
