5 Days of backpacking with Craig was a blast, we did a big loop from Indian Valley, thru Canebrake, over to Potrero then straight over to Agua Caliente and finished up going thru Inner Pasture back to Indian Valley. We spent a full day exploring the upper reaches of Potrero Canyon and found some good running water. Beautiful weather and clear starry nights and some wildlife...a perfect trip!

My new Sil Nylon tarp up on Egg Mtn for the looming rain the first night but never got any. We met up and spent the first night (of 6 total) car camping on Egg Mtn


Anybody see these new wind turbines in Mexico? I just noticed them this trip driving thru Jacumba, Looks like the Sunrise Power Link is right there with them


Another beautiful sunset over Sombrero Peak, hard to get tired of these


Kicking it with some beers at night we had a small kit fox poking around our camp, we threw him a couple pieces of fresh bread and he seemed no stranger to getting handouts




Also hard to get tired of beautiful sunrises, here the moon is joining the sunrise near Carrizo Mtn


And turning around you get Sombrero Peak again


Out in Canebrake


Saw several tarantulas this trip, does anyone know how to tell male/female?


Even had a baby crawl up under my sleeping bag for the night


Some nice flora






A cool micro inch worm


I thought this was cute, a Mama and a baby wind blown brush team


Never know what you will find out in the desert


A couple nice projectiles




Here is Craig heading up the saddle from Canebrake to Potrero


Up at the top you can look north and see Toro Peak way off in the distance, a pretty cool view!


Found another old ranchers/cowboy camp. This one had a shower, tub and a makeshift kinda kitchen with faucet


Hey, what can I say...? You notice my new Dirty Girl Gaitors? They are awesome!!


Some gorgeous starry nights


And even a shooting star


Milky Way


An interesting combo of scat on the trail


Found an ejection seat from a military plane. I have heard rumors of a plane wreckage in the area, that may be another trip to find the rest of it




The last day sunrise on Redtop before we head back into Indian Valley where my truck was parked



Total Mylar Ballons this trip - 12 (1 not pictured)



More photos on my gallery here, way too many to show on this post...hope you enjoy!
