It was time for another hair cut in Mexico so that meant time for another hike on the way back. I keep wondering when if ever progress will resume on the former lookout that burned down. Well nothing yet. There is however an American Flag that has been installed since my last visit.

As I went up the trail I could see dark clouds forming above and to the south. Mostly over Mexico. Lighting was sparking here and there when added a cool spectacle against the dark skies. I had contemplated going to Atascosa Peak as well but didn't really want to get caught in a storm up there. On the way down I checked out a small use trail. I am not sure where it leads but certainly may be a path beaten by immigrants. There was evidence of travel and what looked to be a spot where they may have spent the night.

On the drive out I saw 6 border patrol trucks gathered with 3 illegal crossers in custody.

I always enjoy Atascosa. Maybe because it is so close to Mexico...
