Headed out at the end of March for a few days of day hiking and driving around the old Lake Cahuilla shore line. ( See desert flowers for the flowers along the way) My intention was to return to an area of petroglyphs I had discovered coming out of the east side of the Santa Rosas last year during a 3 day back pack.


The first day I hiked up to the old shore line and up towards the mountians at a new route I wanted to explore. Miners cabin blown down during a storm.



Found and followed a old Native American trail towards the mountain springs.





Off the side of the trail pieces form a earlier time.











This guy was hanging out enjoying the Sun. Temps were in the 70's. He was about 16" long.





The next day the temps went up to about 85 and decided that the long trek to my newly discovered petroglyph zone will have to wait for a pack in water and tent camp. Instead I drove around the Salton Sea following the ancient Cahuilla shore line.
