After wrestling with getting the photos uploaded I thought I would put a "cheater" report up. Still trying to get the camping gear cleaned and stored so my house can return to CHRISTmas time! Here's a brief overview of what we did on our latest 11 day trip. *previewed the new Fossil exhibit *spent 4 nights base camping & hiking/climbing in the Quemadas near upper Fresno creek*hit the hot springs, hiked the canyon near Persimmon Gap entrance station(NICE!)*took my brother-in-law and niece up to the rim for a nice two nighter, climbed Emory peakGreat trip out to Big Bend! Hope to have the trip report up soon......Until then enjoy the photos! https://flic.kr/s/aHskMsLR4H~Cookie
Some really great shots cookie, can't wait for the story. Looks like you all were working the watershed divide in the Quemada, that is some area I want to get into as well. Was all that algae in Fresno creek above the waterworks? Looks like things are slowly de-greening out there.
Most of the hiking we did was north of the Dodson. We were in the upper upper Fresno creek. Also found an area that looked like an old cowboy and possibly Indian camp. That is a great area with lots of summits to climb! I would definitely go back again!
Just got around to seeing this report. Some great pics!This is a lot of crap!DSC03325 by Cookie, on Flickr
We had purchased a 10L bladder for this trip. That thing is HUGE! I would not want to carry that full while backpacking. It worked great for base camping though.
Side note. Years ago my son and I were double booked in Laguna Meadow. It was a mix up between PJ and PG. We were there first and the guys kept moving. Sent from my SM-G925T using Big Bend Chat mobile app
