Had such a good time over Christmas, worked a few days then went back over solo. I hiked some in the bottom of the Carrizo Canyon to get a glimpse of the railroad trestle from below. Obvious a big migrant route with lots of traffic and large water bottle caches. Despite the traffic canyon bottom is tough with willow and tams'. Some four wheelers came in behind me to roads end and on the way back were entertaining themselves shooting down the wash. I wasn't pleased to feel the wind from one of the bullets. I chewed them out royally, employing my four letter vocabulary quite freely. They apologized and drove out shortly after.

I repeated a favorite hike to the old cattle rancher rockhouse; then drove to the middle of the park near Split Mountain. Ocotillo Wells was rocking with the sandrails and Baja bugs.
I saw two rangers keeping the non street legal vehicles from taking off into the park. I talked to one about the forbidden zone---hmmmmm--.
I took a lesser used road and camped up in some mud hills. I have jeeped this area frequently but not hiked a lot of this. I picked a wash I knew nothing of. Had a great journey from mud hills, into slanted ravine I had to stem several feet off the inches wide floor, then scrambled up some dry falls, then into a narrow sandstone sculpted canyon of great beauty. Little balanced rocks, a dead big horn, large predator tracks in the wash. Found a small pool of water where there should have been none. Still a wonderful place of discovery.
