Ho Ho Hike

Ocotillo and distant Torrey Yucca
Becca and I got a bit later start this morning due to Christmas-related activities; afterward we did a short hike west of Tortugas Mountain.  Not surprisingly there weren't many other outdoor enthusiasts on or about the area.  There were more than I expected, though, the parking lot at the Sunset side sporting four or five vehicles when we finished with our trek.  Becca was eager to get back home to discover if there were any more pieces of turkey bacon or pancakes she might get to sample.  Sadly, those are the kind of treats reserved only for breakfasts on very special occasions.
I inadvertently photographed a hiker on that distant ridge
