Gettin' outta Dodge

We left Julian via a ride with a delightful female firefighter. She dropped us off at the "dreaded" Scissors Crossing -- a climb up a steep, very exposed series of ridges. I guess expecting the worst made it seem easier than expected since Dick and I thought it was hot, but no big deal. We found a great place to camp in a saddle just shy of the first pipe gate. Lots of Yucca plants in bloom or fixing to. They are sometimes 12-15 feet tall and look like asparagus on steroids. Lots of beautiful blooms -- pink, yellow and green cactus. The crows always seem to sent out recon teams to check us out -- today was no exception, they dipped a wing over my tent, made a few rude noises and left. The light at twilight is indescribable.
