    nice pics rick. you're timing was good and glad you enjoyed your camping.

    it wasn't in our case. it was wintertime, many years ago. i set up my tent under one of the trees in your pics. there was an owl above and was loud all night. then approaching midnight, there are some guys on a 4x4 with very bright spotlights and headlights scouring the nearby areas and searching for something. again saw them in the morning and each had an assault rifle "style" hiking up toward the nearby hills. not sure what was going on, perhaps some sort of something?

    That owl is still there. In the same tree. He talked to me all night last summer and also to @Mr.JAJA a few weeks before me.

    it’s common to see hunters out there. They were likely just semi auto rifles. assault rifles are illegal for almost anyone to own.

    I’d like to plan a trip for next spring. Hopefully with some rain we’ll have a good bloom. Would love to hit a super bloom and MotoCamp in it.

    fixed my post to "assault rifle style". i apologize to other readers, didn't mean to incite your personal beliefs.

    zubb, that OWL could be an ELECTRONIC DEVICE to get rid of us campers. KCL is convenient but Selby having a restroom i would prefer and thanks to OP for the Selby update.

    I witnessed some ATV's, SXS's or whatever the stupid things are called coming over the Temblors into the monument the previous weekend. No respect for any roads and one shooting at probably a coyote that was over the hill from us. The Carrizo is an amazing resource.

    Rant over.
