Last minute decision to go for a solo backpack trip that was a big loop thru the Tierra Blanca & Sawtooth Mountain ranges. This was an area I had not been to before and was on my todo list. I hiked close to 20 miles total in a day and a half and saw lots of great stuff, definitely worthy of another trip. I have been trying to use just my little Canon S100 camera lately and it takes great pictures when there is good lighting but fails miserably in low light and for star shots. Even with the CHDK installed it still just cannot handle low light photography well.
On my drive out I stopped at the wind turbine in Ocotillo that recently caught fire
They say a picture is worth a thousand words..so here are a few thousand in no particular order of the trip...

Big & Little Prints collide
Drainage I took down into Inner Pasture
Found the jet wreckage that I believe goes with the ejection seat I found on this trip
I saw footprints from 3-4 people that looked like they went up to Red Top, if that was you let me know!
Total Mylar Balloons this trip - 3
A selfie, not sure what inspired this but there you have it....me....only took 20 minutes of fiddling to get that damn camera to balance on a rock just right
