Prickly pear cacti (Opuntia)

My Secret Place

Surreal rock colors and formations

Difficult to access creek

Towers from left to right: Mongoose and Sari (yes, they are climbed)

Above a hidden canyon

One-lane road access and watch for flash floods

24 stream crossings

Hindu (yes, it is climbed)

Peak flows carrying today's mountain snowmelt won't arrive until wee morning hours

Poppymallow (Sphaeralcea coccinea)

Prickly pear about to blossom... big-time
