I decide not to climb up to the Castle Peaks, and instead hike down a wash and across the plateau toward Taylor Spring
Date: May 25, 2010, 14h48
After sleeping in a bit, and eating breakfast, I pack up and leave the tent for today's ride across Gold Valley to Woods Wash
On this cool morning, the sun on my tent feels good, not hot; so I sleep in some. I woke up to loud screeching during the night, perhaps a screech owl. Breakfast is the usual dried fruit, granola, nuts, cold coffee and vitamin C drink.
