With some upcoming trips to the area, I wanted to check on conditions, throwing in a small peak bag to justify the mileage. Baldy Mountain (now Francis Rogers Mountain) is usually accessed via 2HIKERZ's trail from the southeast. Seeing as I was headed up Morgan City Wash, I just parked and hit it from the west off trail. A little brushy at the start, with some lose slopes near the top - otherwise smooth sailing. Nice views of Hell's Canyon Wilderness and cool temps.
Post hike, I drove up Morgan City Wash and Cedar Basin Road to check out the Horse Creek and Burro Flats trail heads. Upon opening the Burro Flats podium, I was greeted with a nest of hornets. :-s
Woke up real quick and ran to the truck, evading all but one bite. :D
Prickly Pear at peak ripeness, ocotillo leafed in and the ground spongy from recent rain. Didn't see soul after I left the pavement.
