Today we decided to go over and check out Coyote Canyon and do not only do some 4WD’ing but also a bit of hiking.

First stop was Alcoholic Pass which was used by both the Cowboys and the Indians. Only about 2 miles or so return trip but with an elevation gain.  Beautiful, beautiful plateau at the top with fantastic views. There is even a guest book you can sign. One of the entries talked about the visitors seeing nude hikers up there.

Whew, a tiring hike but well worth it. Back in the car we went to continue on our journey of Coyote Canyon. We decided to stop at Desert Gardens for a rest in the shade and to eat our lunch before venturing on out into the canyon. We continued on and spotted quite a few fantastic boondocking sites…Earthroamer, Earthroamer, Earthroamer! We even passed over a few small creeks, three of them to be exact. Yes, water in the desert. We drove as far as we could until we weren’t sure if our vehicle could make it any further. Time to turn around and head home! Great day!
