Revisit to the base of Mt. San Jacinto near the windmills. Big surprise found up the hill. Part I.

This will be a pictorial with some comments under a few of the pictures. These
were taken yesterday while hiking close to where Hwy 111 and I-10 meet, at the last windmills to the right prior to the junction, in the Palm Springs area of
southern California.

The temperature was mid 70’s with very little wind. It was a perfect day for desert hiking, hill climbing, and exploration!

Long dead junipers adorn the steep hillside.

Animal tracks were all over the sandy wash area and in the many animal paths.

Looks like a cloven hoof, the walking stick base is in the photo to provide some sense of scale.

A typical animal path or trail.

What happened? I have to shut this down and head off to the bus yard asap.
I will post more later today or tomorrow.

Here is a teaser photo.
