An exceptionally enjoyable camp/hike from recently. Sunny n 70, 20 mph winds on the windward side. Saw some healthy coyotes, plenty of desert hare (mmmmm...), and some scurrying lizards. Just a really pleasant day !

sunsets near camp.

Typical Mojave rock gardens, these high on a ridge.

I plan on hiking in the desert some day, no true desire. But your photos made it seem beautiful and much more tolerable!
Thanks for the share!

Beautiful photos. Were you on trail or just sort of following the ridge? Is this a section the PCT hikers go through?

No trails in the Mojave, unless by game. Just miles and miles and miles of open terrain.
