My first try - here at BCP
In 2007 I gathered some info about that area. In the late spring of 2008 and 2009 we did some hikes in this 'dreamland', located on the West Clark Bench..
Dreamland? Ok - IMO.
At this time that area was a little unknown. Unknown? No, maybe forgotten. Pictures has slept a little as 60 years in the archives.
H. E. Gregory does a shot from that territory, in 1944.

Here from 2009

We started at Buckskin TH and followed the Buckskin. After 2 mi or so we entered a easternly wash, reached a dryfall to the south and hiked in that direction.
From here you can start the exploration - till upwards to the 'horn' of The Dive.
Sorry about the picture quality - I'm not a photographer under the Lord.

Thank you Dan,
oh yes, I've forgot this. In winter and early spring the sky is more clear than in the summer.
I saw some winter pictures from my outdoor buddy.

By the way Michael, thanks for posting this report. Much appreciated. As long as we're down there, we'll probably put in for a South Coyote permit too. Everyone wants to see Cottonwood Cove again.

Nice post. I have hiked the around the middle escape route rim of Buckskin, and of course the Coyote Buttes but never seen this spot. Thanks for sharing
