Ok, going on from where I climbed up the wooden steps and on...
I was really surprised at how nifty this trail really turned out to be.
From the map, I expected boring! NOT!
This upward turn, used rock steps which I see alot on these trails.
Then back to the woodend steps. This IS in succession, I did not go backwards!
View looking West I believe. Overcast till afternoon, thus the dimness.
On and on....
Not sure how this will look enlarged. But this was one BIG barrel cactus.
I am sure swollen from the rains we got the day before.
View of Pusch Ridge from here.
Keep on trekking!
View of this ridge from the Sutherland trail...I thought, Oh I hope I don't end up there...well, I later found out the 50 yr. trail is at the top there, almost in a straight line! Mountains in the distance are the Tortillias, where I one day will hike!
Ok, all for now... come back tomorrow!!
