Beginning of the Pinyon Ridge Trail, pass the balance rock on the left horizon.
A few flowers start to show
There were lots of these daisies along the trail. Many had not yet bloomed.
Lots of big boulders along the trail. Lots of small yellow flowers.
Looking north to the San Ysidro Mountains.
Looking north to Toro Peak way in the distance.
Old tree along the trail. This is where the Pinyon Pines begin.
Frankie taking a picture.
This old wooden post is near the end of the trail. From here the trail switch backs up to a nice little valley just east of Wilson Peak.
View down into Borrego Valley. The green areas are the orchards on the way into Coyote Canyon.
Looking south to Whale Peak.
View from camp looking down into Borrego Springs with all the Santa Rosa Mountains in the distance.
This is the small valley near where we camped.
My sleeping bag and Frank's new tent.
Salton Sea shimmering in the morning light.
Looking north from camp.
Looking west across the boulders from camp.
Lots of boulders around camp.
Two typical Pinyon Pine trees found on Pinyon Ridge. There are not as tall as those on Whale Peak.
Taking the trail out in the morning. Lots of yellow flowers carpet the ground.
More yellow along the trail.
These trees were just leafing out.
