Wilderness of Rocks Trail: Beyond: Part II

We continue our day's trek on our way back to camp, another camp and then basking in the cool world of the creek bed, then sleep....

Awesome report Jbee.  Water and hydration are critical in the desert and highlands, really in every hiking trip.  I wish I could be as confident that the textile encounters here in Texas would be so forgiving.  Be safe you two.

Wow that is some location, Jbee.
It's a wonder some of those balanced rocks haven't fallen off their perch millennia ago.
You do live in an incredible part of the world.  So many geological, meteorological and biological scenarios in just a small area.

Yup, three of the biggest eco-regions in teh world converge here, big sky, many telescopes, sky islands, and fun geology, all within a days drive or less.

We went to another hoodoo haven last weekend. Sort of a Bryce without so much color and tourists. Trip report is in the works along with many others.

It is a truly sad that the fire destroyed most, much or all of it days later. We can't legally get back to it to find out how bad it is. Probably don't need the heart ache and it still hasn't rained, so the creek has dried up anyway. Maybe next year.
