Daren's Dodge diesel managed to get him into Carrizo Gorge with no problems.




While the peak flower season seems to be over there is still much to be seen out in Anza Borrego.




Water was still flowing at the north end of Carrizo Gorge




Checking the pictographs in Carrizo Gorge




Our route took us back and forth across the creek.




Water break




Daren and Mary pose by a six foot barrel cactus.




Daren almost stepped on this DiamondBack rattlesnake which started its' coil and rattle session




Brilliant blue desert skies framed most of our hike through Carrizo Gorge




Daren sets a trail marker




Overlanding through Cholla and Ocotillo




We found another small cave with a few pictographs.




These were a bit more faded than the pictographs in the first cave which makes me think they haven't been touched up.




You could spend a week exploring the caves in Carrizo Gorge




Tired of battling catclaw we decided to ascend to the tracks a bit early




Blooming Agave framed by an Ocotillo




Our goal was the small trestle directly above us.




More climbing




Looking south into Carrizo Gorge




Mary found this old school canteen and decided to take a drink




Our ultimate goal the famous Goat Canyon Trestle




Mary trooping up towards the tracks




Ingenuity.




Daren gives a good perspective on how far we had to climb.




Old box cars that were apparently pushed off the mountain







Mary enters the first tunnel




Hard to imagine that this wood tunnel is strong enough to hold up under all that weight.







Seems someone has been busy clearing portions of the track. I am guessing the latest earthquake dumped a fair bit of debris on the tracks.




Bob gives some perspective to the sheer size of the Goat Canyon Trestle




This tunnel was our favorite.

This is where the expression "Light at the end of the tunnel" comes from. :-)
