Border Monument 229 1/16/2017
Nice day to go hiking. We are getting up to the ridge.
It is steep.
At the first bump.
The ridge is getting narrower.
We are going all the way to the end.
It is lot of downs.
And lot of ups.
Wit and Susan are creatively contouring.
Signing register at the high point. We have most entries there.
Here it is: Border Monument 229.

Looking east the border is clearly visible.
South view into Laguna Salada.
Ocotillos are green.
There is some puzzle to solve. Looks like it was some shooting award that was blasted.
Going down west.
Can they build wall/fence here?
Another mini border marker.
Is this some 229 subset?
Blooming Crucifixion Thorn plant.
Going on flat, wow.
Found a slot canyon but this is not the one we were looking for.
All back, checked but not detained by Border Patrol.
