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..
another place to add to the ever growing list!..the wind caves look very interesting!!!ReplyDelete
You get a good view of the Elephant's knees from the wind caves too. Kelly had hurt knee the day we were at the Caves so she didn't make it up to see them. I thought they were kinda neat with their smooth surfaced rocks and tiny caves.ReplyDelete
You do get around, never know about these caves. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Those Wind Caves were worth the hike!ReplyDelete
Trace of snow here overnite but sun out & all is gone. I yearn for a day over 50degrees.
