A few pics from Day 2.

Rise and shine at Butterfield after a beautiful night. No wind and not near as cold as expected.

Finally packed up and hitting the road (way later than planned due to Shorai shenanigans).

Rolling south on S2.

Regrouping in Vallecito Wash, near intersection of Hollywood and Vine

Starting to get interesting as we head up Tapiado.

Perhaps a Dakar Rally stage will pass thru here

Following in formation.


Crossing over from Diablo to Fish Creek.

Top o the dropoff... looking a little rough

Ersin followed me round the sandy side...

... while Rich and Diego chose the main line.

One down

No turning back now.

Uh oh


All down hill from here.

Dropping into the rocky slot canyon on the way to Fish Creek.

Rich prepares to navigate a narrow boulder-filled step.

Ersin's turn.

Everyone thru safely an waiting for me.

Fish Creek at last. Should be easy going from here on.

Entering Split Mountain.

Ooooo.... Aaaaah....

We hustled out to Ocotillo Wells, ~2 hours late, in search of The Kug

More later...
