Coyote Mountain 1/11/2021
Going up to Coyote Mtn. but this time we are taking the right ridge up instead of canyon like we did last time here.
Here is our group before Wit will split and will meet us at the other side.
Clark Lake (dry).
Another odd markers that John was looking for.
It will be about two and half hours climb up.
So far so good.
About halfway up.
Our ridge going up.
This will be our ridge to go down. Looks easy. It depends on the way we will take.
At the top.
Here is Coyote BM.
Toro Peak is above us.
Way to go up to the Rabbit Peak.
Ramp to Villager.
Indianhead from the back side.
Angelika made it.
John is here.
Our group. We gained Larry who came from Peg Leg side.
Ridge looks smooth from here.
There are some rough spots going down.
Looking back. It is not that smooth.
Borrego Springs on one side.
Santa Rosa Mountains on the other side.
I and Hersch are bushwhacking.
I am calling this: Caldera. It may not be but it looks like one.
Quartz, Black Tourmaline and Gold in rocks. Is this the place where Peg Leg Smith found his gold?
Climbing out of it.
Wit is welcoming us as he said that he will (with beers).
Relaxing, our two youngsters already left.
