Hiking: Picacho Wash off Castle Hot Springs Road.

The Jeep was parked at 3,115' elevation, we dropped down in to Picacho Wash to begin our hike. 
A piece of history in the wash.  
Ants harvesting seeds for storage. 
More wasps. 
A man made water tank.  
I can't say I'd want to drink this but there were many insects that were happy to do so.
Hearts in nature. 
W-a-y far away, I spotted a squirrel.  
And, later, another squirrel. 
A desert willow tree. 
No trails today.  Frank made me summon my inner billy goat.
Looking down.
*steeper than it looks*
Going up. 
Me, part way up the mountain. 
At the top, time for a snack.  
An old mining claim stake. 
Looking down on to Picacho Wash. 
Sliding down a large flat rock.  Because: wheeee!  
Manzanita trees in the desert. 
Hearts in nature.
80 degrees, 2.6 miles.  Lowest elevation 2,923'.  Highest elevation 3,340'.  EG: 417'.
YTD: 87 mi.
