The day started off cold and cloudy. We were greeted by a spectacular sunrise. Our first excursion would be in Wild Horse Canyon, about 12 miles from our camp. The route follows the sandy bottom of the canyon and is a fairly easy walk. Our main goal was to locate two Fremont pictograph panels noted in a guidebook. Couldn’t find the first panel; the second was spotted high on an alcove above the drainage.
On our hike back to the head of the canyon, it began to rain. The rain continued for most of the rest of the day as we drove back to our camp after the hike. The rain finally ended shortly after sunset, with the clouds revealing a brilliant sky full of stars. Soon after, the clouds rolled back in and it began to snow. I’m wondering if our day of hiking tomorrow will be thwarted by a desert snowstorm.
