Mexican Mt. Road


Sunday was a really beautiful day. Still cold, still windy, but just fine for exploration. The first thing I noticed was this arch... I've looked around this campground a million times but never seen this. It is an arch, isn't it... Sherm's arch... It's an arch... (don't look around it too much).


So, anyway, we decided on a big hike. Someone told us about another path into the Black Box, other than the "official" trails (I suspect there are many alternate ways in). So off down Mexican Mt. road we went. Check the view above...

The San Rafael river is odd. Check the following pic... here the river is peaceful and on the surface. Soon after this point, it dives deep into a narrow canyon (pics of this in the next blog post).


As we continued down the road, there were many stops just to admire the buttes and formations. I'll finish this post with a collection of shots I took (as usual, click on the pics for a bigger image). Note: Rodney, photographer extraordinaire, also took many shots. But you'll have to pay for his (more on this later after his web site is up), mine are free...







Next post, the infamous Black Box itself... stay tuned...
