|Getting started out of the Monte Vista area|
After Becca and I finished our moderately long trek on the south side of the mountain this morning we returned to see the RV captain walking around the parking lot with a cup of coffee in hand seemingly unconcerned about moving on to a legally designated camping area.
We saw a few other outdoor enthusiasts on the east side of the mountain, but the parking lot in the Sunset Area was absolutely packed with vehicles as we passed by headed for home. Can't blame people for getting out to enjoy the absolutely perfect spring weather.

|Is this my better side?|
|The 500-yard critter stare|
|Becca spotted two young Mule Deer bucks speeding through the desert|
|A little better look at one|
|Still scoping out the territory|
|Stand of blooming yuccas on the plateau|
|Time for a break|
|Cactus Wren in a Torrey Yucca|
|Still blooming everywhere|
|I've tried to be judicious in posting my flowering yucca images|
|Hard to resist the temptation, though|
|Yucca and the Organ Mountains|
|She's got that critter stare going on again|
|The Organ Mountains|
|Steep northern slope|
|Yuccas flowering on the rocky slope|
|Desert Cottontail on a railroad tie|
Aww--what a cute desert cottontail!
