Cerro Colorado
January 28, 2023

A mesquite (prosopsis juliflora perhaps?) stands in front of Cerro Colorado

Ocotillo everywhere

Now on the slopes, more ocotillo. I stayed left of the pinkish rock band

Higher now, more grass

The home stretch

View east, Santa Rita Mountains

Fraguita Peak, which I climbed this morning, in the distance

A view from my car, revealing the pointiness of the peak
