The ascent was rather friable, and finding a solid footing was a challenge. Dr Desert Flower found a nice piece of granite, and waited 20 minutes for me to ascend, and descend, saving her knees from injury. On our way out of the wildlife conservation area we saw a boy road runner chasing a girl road runner across the road (no coyotes spotted) - the male road runner had a more colorful comb and red eye liner & rouge (go figure). As I was driving, I could not snap a quick picture, but it was an interesting sight.
