Several weeks ago we drove past the town of Ocotillo Wells to Split Mountain Wash, we saw the Elephants Knees but the ground was so muddy we didn’t climb to the Wind Caves.
Today we climbed to the caves which are one mile from the bottom of the canyon.
The beginning of the trail was steep and pretty rough.
Part way up looking back .
Closer to the top the path improved and flattened out
But not for long
Another look below,
Our first look at the wind Caves
They are so amazing
Skip is checking to see if anyone's home.
Even way up here there is graffiti
The Elephant Knees
One last look at the caves
We have had two cloudy days, but still no rain, Monday is a holiday for Martin Luther King Day, so we will stay here over the weekend and on Tuesday head back to Yuma for a while..
