We won’t have to worry about the dust, this time.
A damp saguaro has survived.
The hike to approach Boulder Bob’s from the south started on FR1704.
Sycamore creek was flowing across the roadway.
The road leads uphill as we followed it to "RX1".
At that point we left the road and followed what looked like a trail.
It soon disappeared as we walked thru a grass filled boulder field.
We headed left and up to a ridgeline looking to dodge the catclaw.
Along the ridgeline we came across a dead sheep in the late phase of decay.
After photos were taken, Bill dismembered the lower jaw and tied it to his pack.
Another trail treat.
However, Herm did not care for the smell and refused to walk behind Bill.
It wasn’t long before Bill could not tolerate his own smell and parted
ways with his trail treat. He upgraded to a goat skull.
Leaving the smell behind Herm and Bill donned their new cactus hats
for the cameras.
