Well, don't have a catchier name for my little getaway place. No trails in there so I guess I could say "ridgeline" or "gully" or "canyon." Up the main canyon from the southeast I guess. Took the ranch road once I got to it from the wash. Looking for Indian sign. Lots of signs of UDA'a. Checked out a few little alcoves, one came up with shards, one piece a sort of a corner. Several small silted in dams. Lots of pretty rock, and the area looked like it was possibly mined at one time. The trail was obviously made by rancher or miners, with large rocks moved off of it. I almost caught a bull or gopher snake. Where is Gummo when you need him. The thing was big and wrapped around a bush when I grabbed him/her near the tail. I couldn't pull him free without hurting him significantly. So I let go and grabbed him above the bush as he took off. He tried to grab again but I got him free. Then he tried to bite me, although non poisonous I didn't want any fang holes so set him down and tried to readjust my grip, when he took off. No pics either.
Some pretty birds by the working tank at the canyon entrance. No water up canyon although some nice small dry falls that would be pretty in the monsoon. I was not in the mood to bag the highpoint although the canyon and looked to be the trail would go to a high saddle. I felt I was getting cooked even with 100 sunblock and later had to don my white shirt.
Trying out a new camera I traded a camera body and lens for. Left the wide angle at home

Back to working on a work computer program as an end user; we go live next week so sneaking out today was pretty nice.
