Little Wild Horse Canyon

   

MK Tunnels

Petro glyphs at Buckhorn Draw - Interesting, but I have to think the artists were lousy artists or the people they were drawing were from Mars. The animals depicted are totally disproportionate and the people very odd.

 


      

Mountain Dew Trail - Some say they they can't go to the end of the trail unless they have someone to hold their hand, others have more sense and watch.

The road to Molly's Castle

The Swiss/Lichtenstein campsite

Now someone made a lot of fun of my new winch rope saying he wouldn't have one on his Jeep but funny how the tune changes when that bit of rope is needed. This was some sticky quicksand and I came close to throwing the hook right through Dave's windshield. I had every warning light illuminated after puling him free. It would have been easier if he were not in the Jeep to reduce the weight of the pull
