Posted two blogs today. Read the one below this to stay in sequence.

Hiking day

I was thinking of doing some hiking today but I wasn’t sure where.

Once I got it going I drove on up the road a couple miles.road1

 

Hiking

I stopped here and got out to have a look. I could go two ways so I picked the easiest way off to the right up a creek.park2

 

I walked up through this creek to get back into the area there to have a look around.walk3

 

Lots of desert type stuff to avoid while walking around.walk4

 

Some of the places were lush with green grass.grass5

 

Another hike

I could only go a short distance on that walk so I returned to where the van was parked and went off to the left this time.van6

 

It was pretty rocky but not too hard to go on up stepping on rocks.hike7

 

I walked through this area headed on up to the big rock.walk8

 

I continued on up the canyon going through here.walk9

 

New life

I walked by this interesting cactus. Looks like it’s getting some new life.walk10

 

I walked up onto that lower ridge on the right, not that high one.walk11

 

And eventually started on back taking this different way.walk12

 

I noticed this little cactus which was getting ready to bloom I think.cactus13

 

It’s always good to see the van on the way back from a hike.van14

 

Third hike

After a good rest and break I drove the van back down the road a mile or so to the Signal Peak trailhead and parked. I went for another short hike up this canyon keeping to the right side for a ways.walk15

 

The creek I walked through had some nice rocks to walk on. I picked  my way through the rocks very carefully.creek16

 

I only went about a mile and turned on back towards the van taking a different route back.walk17

 

I  missed the van a little on the way back but only had to walk up the road a bit to find it.van18

 

Coffee and snacks

After a good break I drove on down the Queen’s road headed out and stopped in this spot in the shade for another break.road19

 

I had some coffee and made 3 biscuits.snack20

 

Tonight’s camp spot

After eating I drove down the road putting the rough stuff behind me and camped in this spot just before the sun went down.sunset21

 

I did three walks today which kept me busy most of the day and now I’m tired out.

Nice day for walking and enjoying the desert.
