Pinto Canyon 10/25/2021
Going down to Pinto Canyon. Do they know what are they getting into?
First we have to get up into that saddle.
Lot of rocks, mostly no trail.
Martha is here!
Made it up, looks easy from here.
Alec is here also.
When in Pinto Canyon eat what the locals eat: Pinto Beans (No Artificial Colors or Flavors).
Top of the Pinto falls.
In order to go down the falls we have to start up.
It is a boulder scramble.
Inside the falls. Impressive.
Some more easy drops.
They left brand new shoes here. Hmm.
I can see a Bigfoot in there.
More stuff that you can pick. Just waiting for a free beer stand here.
This is what we came for! The legendary petroglyph that ‘proves’ Lost Ship of the Desert Tale.
Good place to relax. Hersch don’t leave your boots here!
More healthy palms.
Down we continue.
These are nice ones, worthy to spend some pixels on.
Our group by Shaman. Alec is on his way.
Martha is patiently waiting for Alec to catch up.
It is warm, sunny, no breeze we are all dehydrated. Thanks to illegal aliens we all can replenish our water bottles and spirits.
Still not at the saddle.
Got up and there are some clouds like it was in the forecast. Rain? No rain.
Al least we have sun shade above us.
Martha with her smile.
We are at the last scramble down to the freeway.
It is getting dark, where are they? Richard has freshly brewed hot coffee.
Here they are!
We are all back together. Happy. Another adventure.
