It is great to be able to hike in desert again.

Small fallen tree
We are hiking the Tail of the Whale.
Going down to Pinyon Mtn Valley Road.
This is a famous off road.
First there is the Squeeze. When you get thru this there is no return back.
Our group here is hoping to return back.
This is a drop-off (not for cars) that we will attack when we are returning.
Continuing on the road.
This will be our lunch place on a top of the cars road drop-off.
You need good brakes and fate to do it.
Lower part of the drop-off.
Looks like there was a big party at the Honeymoon Cabin.
Everybody is welcome!
The first dam.
What are these wires doing here?
This is a nice canyon. Johnís book says go back. No not us.
Somebody blocked it.
We got over that. There are some other medium obstacles.
Here is that big drop-off we saw from the top.
It is doable. We donít have to go back.
Snake on the road! When it woke up it was a very fast snake.
This road will make your vehicle High Clearance.
Our complete group.
