Chuckwalla loop 2/5/2018
At the rocky trailhead.
Some shade, some sun. It may be warm today.
There is a hiking line.
In the open.
We are splitting. Some of us are doing some prom.
Here we are. There is a register.
We have to catch up with our main group.
Here they are: on spot 3447 consuming lunch.
Our complete big group.
Continuing with our loop.
We need some rain here.
Still on plateau.
It will be a long way down.
After a shady break we continue.
Some of us will also climb the Lizard Peak ahead.
Many ocotillos don’t have leaves but few are blooming.
Climbing up to Lizard.
That young rattler scared Patsy.
Need to get up!
Our group on Lizard.
Rest of the group started our party.
Party is for Shelley’s hikes in John S. Hiking Society.
Here we are in JSHS shirts.
