Anya, check out the Mescalito page - lemme know if you mind the use of your shots there :)
(the token shots of a climber/hiker moving towards the pyramid are kinda boring)

Thank you. No, I don't mind. The page looks very nice.
I love Mecalito, not to mention that both scrambling routes to the top are also some of bighorns favorite hangouts.

Where is Juniper Peak in relation to
Pine Creek Canyon? Is it the tall
rocky one to the southeast of Mescalito?
I still need to post a photo of some
bighorn tracks that I took at Lake Mead.
Have a nice weekend. - Larry of AZ

(Whenever I see Rhubarb, I think of my
Grandmother slaving away in the kitchen,
baking fresh Rhubarb pies! YUMMY - YUM!)

Thank you. That's a special enclave of plants
on Juniper Peak's back-side. And, the reptiles
look right at home. Cheers for sharing this!!
