    Met a friend at the end of Cottonwood Canyon on Sat. It starts at the end of the airport at Stovepipe wells

    My jerry rigged gas can was full just in case.

    My camera was acting up all weekend so the focus is off and the color too.

    [​IMG]
    Hike at the end about eight miles further in the canyon. There is a spring in there for water filtering. It ends up around Lee Flat according to some

    we stopped at the ranger station in stovepipe to get our dv park fee. assuming all the dirty pucks paid, then the park would have gotten at least $1,200 from us that weekend. cheers and great contribution by everyone.

    earlier, we heard from a ranger that they will be opening titus in the afternoon. so once we hit hw95, some decided to continue to ryolite - titus canyon.

    Here's a video of what it was like up around Saline on Wednesday afternoon. Joe and I caught the tail end of the storm up there, and got a bit soaked.
