we took it easy on our last full day at lost dutchman state park. i wanted to hike up to the top of the flatiron (there’s a 2,000′ elevation gain in less than 1 mile!) but we got up late and then were too lazy to get motivated. next time! we did do a 5mi loop that included a little climbing
are these the infamous “jumping” chollas?!? i know that don’t actually jump, but i made sure to give them plenty of space
mike was playing photographer. i’m pretty sure i have my hands on my hips in this photo. the universal sign for hurry up!
we hike to the Green Boulder. it was actually pretty green up there. pretty
a view of the campground. guess we did hike up a little elevation
i think i’m giving up on all 3 of us looking at the camera at the same time
at least mike & i can mange. nice view behind us
me. standing on a rock. actually there was a 100 foot drop behind me. i got a little nervous standing up there. wiener
got chia seeds? kind of looks gross! wait until they get wet. they expand and get all slimy. but it’s nature’s energy food!
all 3 nights we stayed, we had to move sites. although i was happy the campground had availability, it was a pain moving daily. the last night we moved to the overflow area. there was already an older airstream there, but as we were eating breakfast this guy moved in across the street. airstream alley
