This is one beautiful and demanding hike. Peters Canyon is a wonderful place lined with cliffs full of caves. The Dutchman mine may be in there somewhere, you never know. We gave Pistol Canyon a try, but the brush was so thick we gave up and returned to keep ascending Peters Canyon. We climbed out of Peters Canyon before the cowboy dam to meet up with Wally's track up Malapais. The views from Malapais are outstanding. We couldn't find a summit register. Odd. From here its all down hill and easier, right? Not. The descent from Malapais back to Tortilla Flat felt more difficult than all the uphill. Lots of agave, hedgehog, prickly pear, catsclaw, and ocotillo to dodge. Slopes are steep and loose. Some covered in slick green grass. The views make up for it though. Awesome hike with Dave1. Hope I didn't slow you down too much. Thanks for setting this one up! :)
