Narrow, rough, loose rocks and 2000 feet above the valley to an altitude of 7200? feet. It was worth the trip. We didn't get many pictures but we did get 3 lifers.
|View from the top. High winds in the valley stirred up the desert sands making the sky murky.|
|This is the best view I could produce of the road up. A road best travelled with a 4x4 or a rental car.|
|Not a very sharp image of a Bushtit. They seem lighter shade than ours in British Columbia.|
|We were worried we may not find a Buff-breasted Flycatcher but they were numerous above 7000 feet.|
|I never really got a good shot of the Buff-breasted as they were always high up or in the shade.|
|Speaking of being far away and high up-so was the Greater Pewee.|
|Hermit Warbler. The only half decent picture I got.|
|Finally-a Graces Warbler|
|Graces Warbler. Another bird we have been searching for. The high country is well worth a trip for birds we don't get to see down in the valley.|
