Carrizo Mtn 3/4/2019
Looks like a barren place here. Well, it is a desert.
But there are flowers everywhere!
Looks like somebody spilled colors on sides.
We are in Painted Gorge.
It is getting more interesting.
Walls with caves under.
Above the canyon.
Nice zigzag road.
Made it up to Carrizo.
Looking down to badlands.
Wit, John and Beth will take the easy way back.
Our group will do some bumps on a way.
Lots of mining roads here.
Wayne will drop down from here to join the other group.
While we are going up.
Ridge ahead looks fine.
There are some steep drops.
Succulents are thriving here.
Getting off 1532.
We were up there and it is still some way to get down.
After few dead end backtracks we made it down.
While checking the competition at Ocotillo we ended at the Lazy Lizard where the prices are much better!
Thanks to Wayne, Afra and Wit we are having a great time with good beer and great pizza!
