Pictures from my trip down to Mexico can be found here. I spent most of my time in a small town called San Gregorio which is about a two hour drive from Guadalajara.
Pictures from three days in the Mojave Desert can be found here. We spent most of our time on The Old Mojave Road with stops at an old mining area, a lava tube, and the “Mojave Mailbox.”
I had never been to Mount Waterman so I wanted to check it out. We left early Sunday morning to knock this hike out before noon. It was a little confusing as to where the trailhead was exactly, since it is not clearly marked, but we eventually figured it was the trail that had all the blank wilderness signs next to it.
The first part of the hike is a gradual incline that meanders through the woods.
After about a mile you come to a saddle with a nice view to the south.
After the saddle, the trail continues to gradually climb towards the summit.
After a few miles you finally reach a large cluster of rocks which is the summit block. Climbing atop we were able to find a small tin-can summit register.
Below is the map of our hike. All of the photos can be found here.
