Romy 5.2.2011

Standing at the fourth Darwin waterfall. It is 60 feet tall, and makes a cool refreshing pool at the base where we went swimming later in the afternoon after a lunch break. We were the only ones to hike that far!


Jenn 5.2.2011

Standing over a beautiful oasis in the desert called Darwin Falls, home to 9 waterfalls as the springs which feed the oasis cascades down the canyon. We had to climb up and over the first waterfall to get past it (so we can see the other ones farther up the canyon), which required some scrambling up high on the canyon walls.

Squeezing through a tiny passage between a huge boulder and the wall of the canyon.


Jenn 5.1.2011

A giant double boulder jam in a narrow canyon somewhere in the northern end of the Black Mountains, Dip#2, off the Artist's Palette Drive in Death Valley Nat'nl Park. We squeezed through the hole on the lower right of the first boulder to get past it, but the second boulder was impassable for us.
