Thanks for sharing!!
It was fun Tracy I have many more pics.
I did some long range testing of a few of my long shooters while there as well.
I did some night time land nav with kids.
Night nav in the desert is far more bearable than deep forest night nav. I used to live out in that area.
Thanks for sharing the pics!
Wow...only saw deserts in a movie...have to say, pics are great, but I hate deserts...
There are many different types of desert. There is a beauty found in the high desert that can be felt easier than described with mere words. Photos don't do justice to the area.
Right...I was talking about Sahara type of desert...only flat sand...
I am taking the daughter up to nearly 8K tomorrow for an overnighter. Miller Peak Wilderness.
Maybe I will post some pics when we get back on Monday.
Where did you go in the high desert?
Looks like home to me!
Trout Mountains area Southern Oregon
Pretty much looks like MT, WY, CO, NM east of the Rockies. A whole lot of nothing. Oh and cactus.
