Helloooo Jerry!

The drive in is blah. Don't think a Caddy will suffice, high clearance best for some dry mud ruts.

Ridges are my preferred off-trail way to ascend as ravines typically get choked with vegetation. Bob mentioned a ravine up and I was skeptical. It turned out to be quite awesome. It's loose and steep in areas but nothing remotely technical.

Chilly and windy up top. Good to see and chat with other HAZ'ers.

I really liked the area. The saguaro concentration was thick. Which was unexpected after the drive in. The light colored rock is a nice alternative.

No water. Only witnessed a red Chuparosa or Penstemon type wildflower.
