Elephant BM, Alma Wash 2/25/2019
Ready to go hiking.
Where is that Elephant?
Long hike just to get somewhere.
Found the first elephant tree but where is Kerry?
Elephant tree and Elephant BM in distance.
Here is another one.
This one did not make it.
Flowers are everywhere.
Easy portion of the wash.
They all have names but instead of naming them and make some mistakes they are Sin Nombre to me.
John’s group is continuing to Starfish Cove.
Our group is going up to the Elephant BM.
Parts are very steep.
There is an original register from 1980 with only few entries on Elephant BM.
Our group there.
Instead of going down via “easy ridge” we are dropping into canyon.
Lot of rocks in the canyon.
This will lead us into Starfish.
In the main canyon.
Are we there yet? This canyon never ends.
Our group made it back just at dark while the others were patiently doing their happy hour.
