ADOBE HILLS NEAR MONTROSE-
--I took a drive the other day through the nearby hills and did some exploring in a new area. I thought there was little else out there but juniper, creosote bush and the usual desert plants.
I took a questionable looking two track and ended up in this green valley below the vermilion cliffs in the background. What a great place for a short hike and a couple of nice images. Needless to say, I will be going back shortly for some more exploring before winter sets in.
Our dog Jake had a ball exploring the thickets and sniffing out the area. No people or vehicles to worry about.
