Pink powder puffs of cottony clouds greeted us in the early morning. When walking through the desert the distant Red Mountain always served as a guiding light.
If new to the area knowing where to find north, south, east and west became more challenging in the desert. No signs or trails to help and everything starts to look the same. The distant mountains and the location of the sun help you figure it out pretty fast but take a few mental notes before leaving the car. Cell signal can be spotty.
