Old barn off of the 79
There was this cool field of large Buddhas near Warner Springs on the drive out.
Heading down Lost Valley Road. This will take you into the north end of Anza Borrego
Northern boundry of Anza Borrego Desert State Park
The start of the 3 mile hike begins at a point on the Pacific Crest Trail
Our objective for the day.
Apparently wildfires have cleared alot of the foliage out making the scramble to the top much easier.
Bob trekking up the Pacific Crest Trail
Reddish Flat-Tail Horned Lizard. He blended in really well.
There was alot of color on display in this corner of Anza Borrego
Mary spotted this little guy up on the mountain
Onwards and upwards with our objective somewhere in the distance.
Mary takes a breather next to some Desert color.
Looking back down towards Lost Valley Road
High Desert color along the Pacific Crest trail
Squint and it looks like a face with a large lower lip.
Evidence of the wildfire that swept through this area.
I am guessing this is some type of Yucca plant.
Same plant but no stalk.
This duck marks the turn off where you begin the scramble to the top of Combs Peak
The 360' views from the top of Combs Peak were incredible.
Self portrait at the top. What this picture doesn't show are the swarms of biting flys.
Geological survey mark at the top,
We made it!!
There is a summit log contained in the rusty tin can.
Mary carefully makes her way down from the peak.
This is what the trail looks on the way down. Nothing too technical but you had to watch your footing a bit.
