Day two of the Camino Del Diablo/Tinajas Altas adventure. Today we would rise and break camp around 7:00am. We were heading up the drainage by 8. The plan was to hit the High Point of the range and then head out on the Camino Del Diablo towards Wellton.

We made our way up without incident. In an hour and a half we were sitting on top of the world in the Estados Unidos looking down into Mexico. What a treat this was! Weather was perfect and the range is amazing and rugged as can be. The sun bleached granite set against the blue sky was something to behold.

The boys cracked some celebratory brews and ate gummy worms. We all signed the register and chilled for a bit. Then back down we went.

Once back at the Jeep we loaded up and headed west on the Camino Del Diablo. We passed the military laser range and before long we were in Wellton. We nearly ran over a Western Diamondback as we approached town. I circled back and we checked the little guy out.

In Wellton we ate lunch at "the Mad Mexican". A little dive with some good chow. Then it was an easy drive back to Phoenix.

Thanks for the invite Scott and Ken. Super cool part of Arizona! I am looking forward to the next two adventures!
