Fish Creek Mtns. Prom 2100 12/10/2018
I put two pennies on tracks. Will see what will happen if train comes.
We are going up there.
First we want to get on the ridge.
John is leading for now followed closely by Mark.
Beth is taking the left ridge.
John branches to the right.
Our first break.
Salton Sea geothermal plants are smoking.
We still have a long way up yet.
It is either to go on side of the ridge.
Or over rocky bumps.
The terrain is challenging.
How do they eat that?
On top. However this is a false top there are two higher bumps.
Smiling Susan and Patsy.
John made it up.
Our complete group. We are on the highest 2100 bump (we think).
Time to go back down.
That looks steep.
So far Beth is smiling.
Pause in small saddle. 800’ still down to go.
Made it down.
Oyster shell. There used to be a sea here.
The train is coming!! What will happen to my two cents? Well after the train ran over they are nowhere to find!
We are all back in one piece.
Looks like even my camera somehow survived that hard rocky fall. It is time to go home!
